    Is it supposed to snow more tonight??

      I’m reviewing the forecasts for the overnight roundup. There’s a chance of a little, but that’s not the problem, the problem is the icy layer over what is on the ground, after hours of light freezing rain. Here’s the forecast: http://www.atmos.washington.edu/data/city_report.html

    King TV texted me a few hours ago to report OLG was closed on Friday. They are not on your list yet. So, I think that might have been a mistake. Maybe they meant late start. Please update your site as soon as you know something.
