    SPOKANE, Wash. - A plan of attack. It's imperative to have one when going into any battle. You must know what you're getting into and how you are going to come out of it victorious. You must know your enemy. So as we all prepare to take up arms, or in this case utensils, for battle on Thursday, let us get to know our enemy: Thanksgiving dinner. >>
SPOKANE, Wash. - If you're looking to head to the west side of the state this Thanksgiving, or if you're on the west side reading this and are looking to head over to our side of the state to say hello, The Washington State Department of Transportation says Wednesday and Sunday will be the busiest days of travel over Snoqualmie Pass. 

Thanksgiving is of course the least traveled day as the majority of us stay off the roads and stuff our faces. 

It also appears that traffic will be heaviest for those heading eastbound on Wednesday, and then westbound on Sunday.
