It’s a Winter Wonderland…in Seattle

The greater Seattle area doesn’t get a lot of snow at this elevation. For snow, we need only drive 40 minutes or so into the Cascades. Last that drive would take you many hours.
 
Quicker than you could through your coat on and rush downstairs, we had almost an inch of snow and hail collected on the ground. Traffic was horrendous. It took me an hour just to get from the parking garage exit to 31st street – a mere 200 yards! After that it wasn’t too bad, but people just weren’t moving. There was also a lot of people not taking turns pulling out and even passing by those waiting to turn on the left, and then turning right cutting off those of us with patience. When I did finally get to the intersection of 31st Street and 156th Avenue, I saw something I haven’t seen in quite a while – and never here: snowmen. A 20-minute drive on most nights too me 2 hours last night.
 
Bellevue, Redmond, and Kirkland seemed to have been hit the worst. Even now at work there are very few cars on the road and only a couple of us here when most people are starting to show up. Below is a picture of what it looks like outside right now, with dark clouds over the Cascades.

    Cool… the snow… we haven’t had any snow this year here in Milan (Italy).
    Just wanted to say hello… I got here by chance.
    Bye
