Washburn (1972)

Mrs. Harold Elmendorf talked to her daughter, Mrs. Doreen Maida of Seattle, Wa, Sunday evening. They had a severe snow storm there last week and to 22 inches of the white stuff in a couple of days with a terrific wind that piled up four foot drifts all over the city. Temperatures dropped to 14 degrees above zero. Both the snowfall and low temperatures were unusual for them. Schools were closed and everything was at a standstill as they don’t have equipment to cope with that much snow. Our severe cold moderated a little Monday. We are wondering if it will continue to be cold all through February.
