High winds, mountain snow across Washington
The strongest Northwest storm of the season blew in early Monday on winds that gusted to more than 80 mph on the coast, knocking out power in places and creating blizzard-like conditions in the mountains.
Winds knocked a tree onto a home in Lakewood, Wash., near where a 2-year-old was sleeping, but it missed the baby's crib.
Winds also were blamed for sinking two boats on Lake Washington at Kirkland, Wash., and KOMO radio reported that the fire department helped two people who were sleeping on one of the boats.
Heavy snow fell in the mountains. Accumulations from the storm that started Sunday are likely to total 2 to 3 feet by Tuesday morning in the Washington Cascades.
Snow was already on the ground Monday in parts of Eastern Washington, including Spokane.
