Personally escaped major damage, but someone by me was killed by a tree, friend's car was crushed, etc. All and all not a good night.

Early AM run to the Depot to get a chainsaw to free the fishing pond main line from a 90 year old spruce that gave up the ghost about 6pm last night.

Odds are 50/50 for tonight, I am thinking. Avista was down the street, so we may get power back.

Glad you're O.K, Zig. Used to live up near there, lot's of huge, old trees.

Feel for ya UZIZ. We got whacked in Chattaroy by a 16 ton Ponderosa a year ago August. Not fun. This wind bout only brought down a bunch of smaller branches. Had me worried though - some pretty strong gusts came through. Cleaning up today since work is closed. Mrs says traffic lights were 50/50 into downtown from N this AM. She only got home last night behind an Avista rig cutting trees out of the road. I got home before the worst of it. Leaving early for the game.

Just read the news about the storm in your area.
Glad you are ok, and no damages to your home.
Hope things will restore to normal asap.

Wow!!!! Geeze!!!! I'm so sorry for all of the residents in Spokane who are suffering because of the storm, and especially my GU family. I hope everyone is okay, and no deaths reported. Hope the game goes on too, but not as much as I hope everyone is just okay, and that electricity is restored soon. I know it's cold there these days.....stay warm my friends.

I now see a death was reported...just makes me feel sick....sorry.....

From spokesman.com

One woman was killed by a falling tree near the 1500 block of West 14th Avenue on the South Hill. Another woman was killed when a tree fell on a car 5 miles east of Cheney on state Highway 904.
It was a bad/sad afternoon & evening. My middle school wasn't letting kids walk home. They had to call and get a ride. That scenario was widespread in town yesterday. The strongest winds I saw were around 6:00 PM. At one point going N across Peone Prarie at 50 mph I stuck my hand out the window and felt no wind - this was at around 3:30. Trees in spots were whipping around enough it felt very uncomfortable driving by them. I saw no downed trees on my 25 mile commute. That all changed as I think most trees came down between 4-7. I'll bet there will be a few empty seats at the game this evening due to many ticket holders having to deal with the storm's havoc.

with almost 200K people without power... it might be difficult

Avista lineman are down by us. I heard 5 or 6. Power across the street. Cleaned up all day so far. Lots of damage around us. 4 totalled cars in a two block radius. Ended up looping around some sketchy branches 25/30 feet up and pulling them down. Sort of just dangling there.

I'll set the pond up if I have services.

Hope you are all ok.

Hopefully if there are issues that GU won't back out of streaming on TheW. Going to the regular fishing hole first though. Wish I could figure out a way to get either on my smart tv

I just assumed that since ESPN lists the game as being broadcast on ESPN3 that it would be available on WatchESPN, but now that I check I don't see it there. Am I missing something?

Power out at my sister's house, but not at mine. Her son will bring her down to my house so that she can see the game.

Oddly, WatchESPN isn't streaming the game online, but theW.tv has it.

I don't get a picture with W.tv, just the sound and a list of play by play.
