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.
