Rain could lead to some flooding

December 26th, 2008 by Miss Kitty

What can we expect on this day after Christmas?  Major sales!  As reported in the Seattle PI, many retailers opened before 6 a.m., offering 50 percent to 75 percent off on toys, furniture, electronics and clothing. J.C. Penney opened at 5:30 a.m. – the earliest post-Christmas opening in the chain’s history – and offered customers more than 100 “doorbusters” until 1 p.m, including 75 percent off Christmas decorations. The chain even made wake-up calls to customers who signed up online. Downtown retailers were also ready to go!

More precipitation today, however, a slow warming trend should melt much of the snow from the past week.  Be aware of the hazardous driving conditions caused by snow and ice-clogged storm drains.  There is a flood watch warning being issued for parts of Western Washington.
