A little snow builds a pile of perspective

Storms seem to take on epic proportions in people’s memories, growing larger and more fabled with each telling. The last few days of cold and snow in Enumclaw and the entire Puget Sound area will long be remembered as the storm of 2008. After all, Sunday, Dec. 14 we woke to a blanket of 2 inches of the white stuff - more where it had blown into drifts. Wednesday the 17th they were predicting additional snow. Then during the past weekend we were assaulted with more snow and, in some areas, a whole lot of wind. Tonight, they are predicting more. No doubt this was a significant storm but the way people are already telling it, you would have thought that it was several feet deep with temps in the low teens or lower. Schools were closed even before the worst of the snow came. At Calvary, we have been in a constant quandary as to whether things at church should be cancelled.

Police Blotter

• At approximately midnight Saturday officers responded to a noise complaint coming from a resident on the corner of LaFromboise Street and Roosevelt Avenue regarding his neighbor constantly revving up the engine of his car. By the time police arrived the complainant had already confronted the subject and the twosome were in the midst of a verbal altercation. Cooler heads prevailed and a battle was averted.
