Weather: As if you hadn’t noticed… It’s snowing out there! Here are some links: The Forecast. SchoolsWeather Service

Traffic: A real mess in some place, especially south of Seattle, in Pierce and Thurston counties and points further south. It’s slippery in Seattle where there’s an inch or so on the streets and roadways. The map and the cams

We continue to be amazed how a little bit of snow shuts down the city: Schools closed, some city government offices closed, Metro on limited schedule; people skip work. When we were kids, “Why, we walked through three feet of snow…”
