I didn't get a ride in this weekend. Saturday's winds were just too much. Sunday, after church, we went to a few nurseries and bought more goodies for the garden.
On my way back from court this afternoon, I started off in sunshine, noted a strong northerly wind (yay! downwind of Hanford!), then sideways rain which turned into hail, followed by sleet. I'm assuming this weather system will have passed by the time I leave work. It better have moved on, because I intend to ride my bike home!
Washington's DOT closed westbound I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass this weekend because of the number of spun-out vehicle blocking the interstate. Eastbound traffic had to be chained up. There were a couple of avalanches in the area, too (but not over the freeway - WSDOT does an excellent job of avalanche control); a couple of people died. Weather-wise, April is shaping up to be much crazier than March was.
