YouNews user "CreekMe" submitted this photo taken Thursday, November 13 of flooding along the Snoqualmie River.
November, 2008 is in the books, and it'll be remembered for two flooding events and some very frowny skiers. The average high temperature for the month was 54.50 degrees -- tying it for the third warmest November at Sea-Tac ever.

Here is that chart:

1) 1949: 56.17 degrees
2) 1997: 55.30 degrees
3) 2008: 54.50 degrees
3) 1965: 54.50 degrees
5) 1995: 54.47 degrees
