Did you notice thick smoke billowing into the blue skies over Snoqualmie Ridge this morning? Thought maybe there was a house fire? Nope. Not a house fire, but rather an ailing logging truck chugging its way through the Valley and over Snoqualmie Parkway.
Witness Derek Young said saw the truck hauling a full load of logs, chugging its way up steep Snoqualmie Parkway toward I-90 around 8:20AM, April 1, 2013. Derek said the truck spewed thick, black smoke all the way up the Parkway, adding it was so thick that the sky was dark for a few hundred yards behind it.
Who knew one truck could produce that much smoke and not be on fire?
