Yes indeed Winter Storm 2005 has hit the Seattle area! Take cover! Yah so we got 1/500th of an inch of snow today and people are freaking out. Ok so they got a bit more on the south end of town and the roads were kind of slippery but it's not the end of the world. Some schools were closed due to icey roads. It turns out that this day last year was Winter Storm 2004. We get like two or three days of snow a year sometimes less sometimes more. We might get more snow tonight and tomorrow. If there's enough I may just stay home tomorrow. And apparently, in case you didn't know... Seattle is the best prepared metropolitan area in the country for snow storms. Somehow I find that hard to believe, but it's true!
Last month the National Weather Service singled us out as more prepared to deal with severe winter weather than any other metro area in the country. The National Weather Service credited our 24 hour warning centers, and above average communication during snowstorms. taken from our local Komo News Station's website! Get your ice scrapers and shovels ready!
