  • AMTRAK Derailment in Washington on first trip over this track  many injured & dead live on link   Passenger train on first run on this track   Passenger cars were slit in 1/2.  one upsite down on I-5   CBS is live   High speed train on old track  80mph at time of derailment   Many autos on I-5 were hit   CNN is putting pictures up faster than I can
  • Donald J. Trump
    The train accident that just occurred in DuPont, WA shows more than ever why our soon to be submitted infrastructure plan must be approved quickly. Seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East while our roads, bridges, tunnels, railways (and more) crumble! Not for long!
  • Donald J. Trump
    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in the train accident in DuPont, Washington. Thank you to all of our wonderful First Responders who are on the scene. We are currently monitoring here at the White House

CURRENT  RADAR     Wind  WSW  10-15mph

Normal highs this time of year are in the low to mid 30s, but this week's temps will not be normal. Highs each day are likely to be above average, much above average Tuesday and Friday. In fact, some night time lows will be warmer than average highs. Showers are possible Thursday night and Friday, which will herald the beginning of a pattern change to a much colder, more typical December-like weather this weekend and beyond
