Normally I'd be quiet, but realize that not all news travels, even when 
it's bad. I don't know whether it's been restored, but last I heard, 
traffic on I-5 between Portland and Seattle was completely cut off, and 
traffic was being routed through Yakima (making a 3 hour trip into a 7 
hour trip). Oregon is very hard hit. Here's the Washington map; it's bad 
enough here.
