Snow!

Last night, inches of beautiful snow arrived to the Beach Drive neighborhood.

Based on what I’m hearing from neighbors and what I see in our yard, I’m guessing we have about 4-6 inches of snow. I have not ventured out yet to see what the streets look like. Please let us know how the roads are in your area!

Winter Storm Warning is still in effect until 4:00 pm today. (Last update 3:45 am)

...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM PST THIS
AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...Additional snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are
  expected through midday. This will be on top of the 2 to 4
  inches that fell near the water in Seattle and 5 to 8 inches
  that have fallen elsewhere. North winds will increase today to
  15 to 30 mph with a few gusts to 40 mph. The wind may reduce
  visibility at times due to blowing snow, especially near
  shorelines of the inland waters.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest and west central Washington,
  including Seattle, Everett, Tacoma, Bremerton, Bellevue, North
  Bend, Redmond, Kent, Mount Vernon, and Oak Harbor.

* WHEN...Until 4 PM PST Saturday. Snowfall will slowly taper off
  today.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Heaviest snowfall at 345 AM extends from
  around Seattle northwestward to Port Angeles. The snowfall will
  taper off from east to west today. Travel will be very
  difficult today.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather
conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you
must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency.

For the latest road conditions in Washington state, call 5 1 1.

I guess it’s a good thing we braved the grocery stores for “combat shopping” after all! Although
I must admit, I enjoyed seeing neighbors and making new friends while waiting in the long lines. šŸ™‚
