The recent snow, and particularly the ice storm that followed, certainly impacted Western Washington. One of the areas that sustained a great deal of damage was in the areas around Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater. Power lines down, trees blocking roads, and in some cases trees down on houses. We live in a fairly forested subdivision in Lacey, and the yards and streets were left looking like someone jumped from tree to tree with a chainsaw, randomly cutting big and small limbs to drop to the ground.
As the area continues to do clean-up, it is good to be aware of the Thurston County emergency management site, http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/em/ Winter storm damage reporting is one task they are managing. They ask that you report damages, which become a part of the area wide greater assessment. This helps the state certify damages in asking for federal assistance as part of any declared weather related disaster.
In addition to the post snow and ice storm work, the site has good information on preparedness for future events, including some of the yearly challenges with rivers and streams in the county.

She has an APPARENT wealth of knowledge from her experience and was extremely proactive and diligent in helping us navigate the home buying process (one of which was a tedious short sale).
