Winter Storm Watch

The National Weather Service has put out a Winter Storm Watch for the Olympics and Cascades.  I love it when that happens.  I especially love when they mention accumulations of 20 inches near Mt. Rainier.  Crystal is only a few miles from Mt. Rainier.  You do the math.

 

 WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT
