Curious if you have snow today and where you're at. I'm in central Salem and I woke up to a dusting and it's still coming down

East of seattle in the very outer foothills, just a trace that only stuck to vegetation. The roads are dry, which is a very good thing for us. We get stuck up on our hill if the roads are icy. It is unusual for us to NOT get more snow than the surrounding areas, though!

There's a very light dusting here in Vancouver. It's still sprinkling down, but mostly seems to melt on contact with the ground. Looks like someone ran a sifter with a bit of powdered sugar out there.

We're have about the same, but we're a bit higher, so if anything, we have more! :

We got at least 4 inches in my town, and now its mostly ice. DH's car sits off the side of our road (its a sloping green belt accross the street)- his driver's side tires can't get any traction, and AAA can't get a tow for us until at least tomorrow

He took my car to work today since I knew I wouldn't need it since my littlest one has the stomach flu

My partner stayed home today, and will take the bus tomorrow. I walked up the hill today, which was probably a mistake, because even the major roads were completely ice covered!

We are south of Everett and hunkerin' down under 4 inches or so. I think our agenda will include a few snowmen today. :

Cascade Foothills, about 400 feet, directly due east of Seattle. Due to the "rain/snow" shadow cast by the Olympics, we only have about a half inch. About 3-5 miles east they have 7 inches. It's CRAZY!

We're drowning in snow out here, I'm sooooo ready for this to be over! We're east of Bellevue/Redmond. : I just looked out the window, they don't plow our street but they do the one right above us, the plow is now stuck.

This was 7pm last night -

Near Bellevue/Redmond over here..we have at least six inches! Probably more now. The commute is a nightmare and several streets and parts of major highways have actually been shut down.
