Got home this afternoon about 2pm and it started coming down sideways. The rain – then slush, and finally snow. It’s being reported as drizzle and rain in the downtown core – amazing what an additional 400 feet of elevation will get you. It’s a wet sticky snow, and the lights have flickered out a couple times – brown out stuff, not anything full-blown down as yet. Although with snow like this, any weak branches over power lines are ripe to go.

Not sure what tomorrow (or the rest of this week) will bring. I sure wasn’t expecting to actually *see* snow – let alone have slush last into the night. The buses appear to all still be running tonight, so I expect they’ll be running tomorrow too. I wouldn’t want to be on the roads tonight though – the potential for ice is going to be really nasty.
