Freak Snow Storm Hits South Eastern WA, Causes Power Outages and Shuts Down School for the Day
Just three weeks ago, a school in Bellingham was closed due to excellent weather. Something that will never happen on our side of the state. Then again, I didn't think our side of the state would have a snow day in May. That is exactly what happened last night as the town of Bickleton in Klickitas County was hit with up to a foot of snow in some areas!
According to KAPP TV, there were numerous power and phone outages in town and school was canceled for 170 K-12 students. Utilities should be restored and school will resume on Thursday.

Growing up in the Tri-Cities, I can remember snow as late in the year as March and as early as October, but never in May. During our little storm last night in TC I wasn't even thinking about snow, I was hoping for a sweet light show...that never happened.
What was one of the weirdest/freakiest storms in the Tri-Cities you can remember?
