Snow in Washington

19 12 2008

The forecasts came true and now there is snow all over Washington. I think the Arlington area got the most – over 2 feet according to the news. Redmond, where I grew up, got around a foot. Here in Poulsbo we only got a couple inches, but everything still looks beautiful. Some photos:

These photos are a view from the front of our house. The water is Hood Canal and the mountains are the Olympics.

Right now we just have cold weather (the daytime high is below freezing) before some more snow tomorrow. Check out what NOAA says about what’s coming in:

“STRONG EAST WINDS WILL PREDOMINATE SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. THIS
MEANS THAT THE HEAVIEST SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL MOST LIKELY BE
OVER THE KITSAP PENINSULA AND ALONG HOOD CANAL
…WHERE THE EAST
WINDS WILL ENHANCE THE SNOWFALL BY CREATING UPSLOPE CONDITIONS AS
THEY ENCOUNTER THE OLYMPICS. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS HERE COULD RANGE
FROM 6 INCHES TO A FOOT AND A HALF
.”

Interesting… hopefully I can make it to the airport on Monday night, although it’s not supposed to snow as much there.

Best,

Lizzy
