    Like Rozane Rozanada used to say “if it’s one thing it’s another, but it’s always something”!

    Oops wrong again. As is so often the case with clickbait weather headlines always seeking to be sensational these days

      Not according to my friend, who lives on the Ham Road that said the high winds shook her house last night.

      We live just outside Bellinhgham city limits. NWS forecasts are accurate for us most of the time.

        Definitely accurate south of Everson, lots of tree debris down all over and loud all night.
