The weather today is cold, wet, windy and miserable. But more than that, it's a bit dangerous out there. Not only are local rivers and lakes approaching flood stage, but there is some standing water in some areas that can surprise an unwary driver. This morning there was a large lake across the northbound lanes of Pines Road across from High Nooner. I saw a big truck hit it going fairly fast and huge curtains of water were thrown in the air higher than the truck. The Washington Department of Transportation is advising that there is water over the freeway near the Barker exit. And I just heard a report over the scanner about someone in the Airway Heights area who got electrocuted when working near a power line. Thankfully he doesn't appear to be very badly injured. I vote we all stay inside where it's warm and dry.
