The Slice

When your family is spread out

If some of your loved ones live in places where hurricanes or tornadoes are not unheard of, there's a chance you pay slightly more attention to the national weather than the average Inland Northwesterner.

But do those far-flung relatives ever pay attention to Spokane's weather? I guess it depends.

Usually, our weather isn't headlines material.

Once though, more than 20 years ago, my wife and I were back East in December. While we were away, Spokane got all but buried in snow.

I can't tell you how strange it was to see Spokane on The Weather Channel while being so far away. Seemed almost disloyal.

Have you ever seen the old hometown on TV while far from here?
