you have to understand they dont get much snow in the seattle area, and a LOT of drivers over there dont like driving in the snow.. i happened to be there years back when it did snow, and people were abandoning their cars on freeway offramps.. they dont want to chance driving in the snow..

we started getting snow here in spokane around 9am today, and we are under winter storm advisory until 4pm tomorrow.. probably have 2-3 inches accumulated now

Yeah - two issues here in the Seattle area:

1 - We don't get that much snow, so drivers are not familiar with driving in it, and municipalities don't spend much money preparing for it. When it does snow, it is gone in three days max, so nobody wants millions spent on plows and other preparation.

2 - Hills. Everybody in the flat Midwest/East likes to berate the PNW for the bad snow driving, but those same people driving on our sharp slopes here would be on the varsity fail team.

I remember when I lived up there and commuted to work from Federal Way to Boeing in Everett for the afternoon/evening shift. When it would snow like that, I never had to worry about traffic because nobody was on the freeway lol.

Have about 4-6 inches here in the CDA/Post Falls area.
Just waiting for a "lull" in the action to go and plow my driveway with my new for me in 2012 SnowsportHD 8' plow blade.
Sure beats trying to plow 180' driveway with a 4' blade on a quad.
Especially when the snow is 12" deep and wet.

I'm in Marysville, about 45 minutes north of Seattle. Tuesday was the worst for us. I had over a foot of accumulation by the afternoon. Today added about 3 inches so far.

Here we go. As of this afternoon: Took neighbor to pick up husband. Could not get out of driveway. Took other neighbor to Starbucks with us. He could not get out of his driveway. Third neighbor tried getting out of driveway, got stuck, pulled her back into her driveway, told her no way. No pics of the action, but plenty of snow pics:

Mine and the missus rigs, in the drive... mine is on the left, sitting on 37's. Hers is on the right, sitting stock.



The kid's rig....





The girls having a little fun....




The missus playing in the snow.




She sure is proud of her Rubi.

Nothing melted and now has a coating of ice on top. Power outages are up in our region now.

that's why when I lived in Auburn I had a BIG ASS generator, power was always going out. Had a 2-door 2006 Wrangler X then, was nice when we had the big ass snowstorm in 2008 I think it was, hundreds of cars abandoned on I-5, shut the area down for about a week.

went out with my buddy today and posted up on a bad intersection on a very hilly part of town and probably helped push 30 cars that were getting stuck.. had to winch one back onto the road.. fun times people who werent getting stuck were rolling down their windows thanking us and telling us we're awesome haha.. we ended up getting ten bucks from a chick driving a newer volvo.. told her how to turn traction control off so that she could actually GET traction..
