Weekend weather reporting...

We activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in Olympia this morning as just one of the many steps we are taking to be prepared for this weekend's storm events. We are reporting travel alerts and road conditions for much of the state as it rolls in.

Some of our favorite sites to watch over the weekend:

1. Our own travel alerts and road conditions
2. Of course, National Weather Service - Seattle and Olympic Peninsula
2. Our own Twitter account
3. Twitter users are posting current condition reports by tagging their posts with #seatst.
4. Cliff Mass has a weather blog that has users also posting current conditions

Stay home if you can. If you must go anywhere be prepared before you go, blizzard-like conditions have been forecasted.

The Twitter idea is an awesome way to connect folks! Great job! Drove from Olympia to Bellingham this morning with no problems, except near Arlington-- lots of compact snow, bumpy and icy!!! Good luck this weekend, hopefully folks will drive slow and smart-- I saw a lot of crazy drivers today.
