I started to write this in an attempt to make us feel better about how much mother nature has been sending our way over the course of the last two weeks, however the more I write, the further I get from that goal. Regardless, this is still pretty impressive. Friday morning a major winter storm hit Seattle that knocked out power, snarled traffic, delayed flights and left 6.4 inches of snow on the city.
This is the second largest daily amount in the past two decades, per the National Weather Service. The city usually averages 6.8 inches of snow over the course of a whole year. Gov. Jay Inslee has declared a state of emergency, and alerts are being blasted out warning of more bad weather before the weekend is over. The system blanketing the east coast right now could potentially bring another 5+ inches to the Twin Cities this coming week.
