♪ Walking in a winter wonderland. ♪
UPDATE 11/24: The city of Seattle is on hiatus right now with snow on the ground and ice on the roads. Stranded cars, stranded buses and stranded people were all too common the last few days, and the holiday forecast calls for light snow and (hopefully) a little rain. Happy Thanksgiving!
The University of Washington cancelled classes on all three campuses Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday’s round-up from the Seattle Times had a lot of information, while Wednesday’s follow-up asks why can’t we handle the snow? You can subscribe to the official UW Alerts program for text messages, Facebook and Twitter updates. And check out this great video of the UW campus covered in snow.
Hopping off the bus Monday morning, I took a stroll through campus as the flakes were still falling and snapped a few pictures on my smartphone. The UW campus is stunning every day of the year, but it’s a magical sight with the snowfall. See the full show below or on our Flickr site.
Of course, you can learn more about the storm on the Cliff Mass Weather Blog. And feel free to share your stories. Here’s a crazy video of somebody trying (and failing) to drive up Queen Anne hill, and here’s a fun one of the Husky football team practicing in the snow. Getting ready for the Apple Cup in Pullman, I imagine.
Enjoy the snow, Huskies. Stay safe!
