    So it snowed like 13 inches here since last night. Good thing I went to my rents house in suburbia otherwise right now I'd be standing in line at the tow lot instead of sitting on my ass drinking coffee, debating if I want to try and drive to work.

    it's been nuts here in the seattle area too. not 13 inches but still nuts for here. It doesn't snow that much here, especially this early. i probably have about 4 inches of snow and ice around. have had it all week. and we are supposed to get more this weekend...

    Yep, we've got the snow now. I'm already home from college, so no worries there.

    yep seattle is really messed up right now. i walked the 4 miles to work instead of risking going out in the unplowed, icy streets. if i had a 4 wheel drive car it'd be one thing, but i don't dare risk it in my xB

    You drive a vending machine on wheels? Does Seattle not plow/salt or what?

    FU :) i love my xB

    Seattle has like 2 snow plows for the whole city. We don't usually get snow so getting as much as we did yesterday (4-6 inches) shuts down the hole city. Everything is covered in ice. It's sunny out, but it's still freezing so nothing will melt.

    ^^ Thats the conditions out here at the moment. When i left for work this morning I was basically just guiding my car down my street as it slid. On the way back I only made it half way back up my street before i lost traction and had to just park it.

    It was kind of odd, as I was walking up i was walking on a thick layer of ice and could see all the water running underneath it.

    The roads up here are cleared now pretty much everywhere; we're expecting another 10cm on Saturday though so I can't wait! I HATE the cold but I love the snow and the havoc it causes

    Crazy, everyone is getting snow all over the place but the weather here seems to go from 20F to 55-60F every other day.

    Got stuck in 18 inches of snow yesterday. Had to dig the truck out (4WD). I was about 3000 ft in the Cleveland National Forest when we reached the 30% grade and lost all traction. Spent a good hour digging up snow and wrestling with the truck. :\

    The difference between where I live and there is here you can use the snow for fun. You can only whitewash your bother so many times before it looses the fun.

    I'm probably going snowboarding tomorrow!

    Seattle is about to go to hell it seems.

    It's been in the 20s for the last two days, many of the roads are solid ice, and we have a blizzard warning for tomorrow night, with more snow and winds.

    Should be exciting!

    We did not get squat. Just buttloads of ice cold frigging rain. Was supposed to snow, they said it would dump 3-7 inches, instead the storms stalled over the Salem/Portland to Seattle areas. We only got a fine powdering at nights, then cold rains hit.
