Item: Pineapple Express hits with a fury/Michelle Boss, Spokesman-Review correspondent
More Info: It is known as the Pineapple Express, and this particular one hit the Northwest with a fury earlier this week. Strong winds, heavy rains and record high temperatures in the middle 50s made their way into the Idaho Panhandle. This snow eating monster of a storm melted away piles of the white stuff just as quickly as it had fallen.
Question: We're a week and a half into what I call "hard winter" (December/January). The weathermen have made their guesses about winter '07-08. Do you have any predictions re: how the rest of winter will play out?
