When Is The Driest Day To Plan An Outdoor Activity?
By Steve Pool
Cottonwood tree felled by today's windstorm destroyed home in Lynnwood. Occupants - fearing the intensity of storm - retreated safely to their basement just minutes before the tree fell. House is a total loss.
A huge tree, in Lynwood, snapped in half causing branches to brake windshields open, damged equipment, and frontal damge of a car. Started out as simply winds, leading into wilder then moments before causing a rather large tree to fall over and hit three cars.
The cloud bands around Mt. Rainier are a sure sign of changing weather conditions. These images of Mt. Rainier were taken Thursday evening around 7:30pm with a Nikon D3000
and a 200mm telephoto lens. The dark spots on the 1st image is flock of birds (not dirt on the lens).
