Coming from Canberra I was such a snow-tourist, going out to take photos that night and then again the following day. The snow lasted until mid afternoon and then it was gone, replaced with flooding rains. The major freeway (I-5) from Seattle-Portland was closed for a few days due to flooding, causing many trucks and commuters to take 180 mile detours.
We took a bus trip to Leavenworth and got back to find Tiny (our poor little car) covered with snow. G was lucky to have her favourite warm jumper (hoodie) on, a supporter's jumper for the Washington State Cougars.
