Winter Storm Warning

West Seattle Blog has compiled a great list of things to do to prepare for the pending wind/snow storm and emergency numbers here.   I remember almost exactly two years ago, we were without power for 6 days!  From listening to the news, it sounds like our area will be hit more with snow and east King County/Cascade foothills will be slammed with strong winds.  Let's hope for another near miss with Mother Nature!
