Last week, the Snoqualmie City Council kept an open mind (and open pocketbook to the tune of $12,000) for the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Winter Magic festival.

The Chamber, first under Nate Perea, now with Director Lizzy Billington, has been working for about a year to get some kind of rink downtown.

Some closest to the blast, like Michelle Dunbar’s now-homeless Kutters salon and Lisa Riley’s planned restaurant, may never be the same.
