I can already hear the smirking responses! To those of you readers who live in snowy climates (I’m looking at you, Canadians, Mid-Westerners, and East-Coasters!), I recognize that 1 foot doesn’t seem like an extraordinary event, in and of itself. Keep in mind a few things:
- Seattle-ites are just not used to it (see the data, above)
- we don’t have a lot of equipment to deal with the snow
- it’s really, really HILLY here!
Put those all together, and it’s actually quite an event here. At times, it can be a little scary.
