      Right?! And with another severe Winter Storm arriving soon to boot with up to 8″ of snow between now and Wednesday, not a fun thing to have to remedy.

    That mobile home has most definitely seen its better days. I’m sure they were transporting it violating a number of RCW’S including a non-permitted OD load. Ouch that fine is definitely going hurt the pocketbook of a couple people Imma thinkin’!

    Sounds like they were trying to avoid having to pay money to move it but that’s not the way to do it
