    Another house taken today...none hurt. 147 people evaced from their homes. This ain't over 'til the fat lady sings...

    The hurricane was over before the avalanche. But it packed a lot of snow in the hillsides and that is what is coming down now.

    OUCH....but the number of first-responders does lift the spirits. Best wishes to the community and that they heal over this natural tragedy.
