You probably heard it here last....

"Interstate 90 normally carries about 7,000 trucks a day. The economic cost of closing I-90 is $20 million a day, according to WSDOT estimates."

Yes, it's closed again. But only after another avalanche buried three cars in the Westbound lanes!

"By late today, crews had detonated about 850 pounds of explosives in an eight-mile stretch east of Snoqualmie Pass and have removed the equivalent of 200,000 dump truck loads of snow."

Got snow?

Even better headlines though - this makes 90 sound like a cake walk:

Route 20 avalanche strands 75 people in Diablo

Don't worry - they have helicopters on the way to drop off supplies. Whoa.
