A couple from Olympia decided to take a trip to Leavenworth, and become stranded in the famous town known for Christmas fun and snow.
What started off as a romantic getaway for the couple turned into documenting Leavenworth's snowmageddon on Tik-Tok, making them famous.

Brittany Clark-Hargraves and her husband Cory had no idea what they were in for. The locals were all discussing the big storm. Last Thursday, Leavenworth had received 36 inches in less than 24 hours. Wenatchee reported 24. 5 inches of snow in 24 hours.
On Friday, Leavenworth Mayor Carl Florea declared a snow emergency. What to do? Brittany and Cory got right back to documenting their way out on ick-Tock.

The Hargraves made it back home to Olympia Sunday night after the pass had opened and conditions improved. No word on when they plan to visit Leavenworth again.
National Guard troops are currently assisting with emergency response after the record snowfall hampered activity in the town. The Guard made numerous welfare checks and helped residents and visitors dig out. Troops also helped with food delivery and snow removal.
