Like Treebeard, but not in a good way

My sister, brother-in-law, and his son spent the better part of today here in my apartment, as there was no power in their southwest Seattle home until this evening. Like many Seattleites, they had an unsettling evening this past Wednesday. But they had the added bonus of listening to a tree hammer against their gutter (pictured). They said it sounded like Treebeard was out there, making a ruckus.

Heard about your storm. Some of my friends in blog land couldn't post because they had no power. You have had quite the year, kind of makes me think about global warming, as it is in the 40's here in MN with no snow.

It's definitely a question worth exploring - what is the connection between global warming and the recent crazy weather in the pacific northwest? Good post here on this.
