Down comes the snow

We missed the first snowfall in Seattle this year. Usually that’s equivalent with we missed the snowfall in Seattle. Not this year though – today we’ve got 4″ and it’s still coming down. Granted that’s on Queen Anne (we’re at “elevation” for Seattle – all of 420 feet high), but the roads all across the area are completely swamped. This is a snow day for everyone – especially given that the city has a total of 50 snow plows.

One thought on “Down comes the snow

  1. Today, MT routes 2 and 13 are *suspended*. On the west side of Queen Anne, it’s quiet. No cars on the road, no people, no nothing. Last night, Queen Anne Ave was closed to all traffic, even busses. Yikes. I’m staying home today.
