For those of you who live in Canada, have an inch or two of snow on the ground is now reason to shut down the city. But here in the PNW, as soon as the white stuff hits town, everyone goes nuts. We’ve got about and inch on the ground here, and near my work is 6-7 inches. The biggest problem is actually ice. The roads are covered in black ice, and compact snow and ice in other spots. Highway 512 was completely closed down overnight because of ice on the road, and near Bellingham, I-5 has been closed for a couple of days due to 4 to 5 FOOT drifts of snow.
Hopefully things will thaw out in the next day or so, and life can get back to normal.
