The Seattle area has been hit with another legendary snowstorm, and it left Bellevue battered and bruised. With record-low temperatures near freezing, Bellevue received a heavy snowfall that dumped nearly 0.1 feet of soft, fluffy, slippery white stuff throughout the area. Some people are abandoning their cars, others are stopping to put chains on the front wheels of their BMWs and Mercedes. The rest didn’t even get out of bed yet. Double-length buses and tractor-trailers (lorries) are jackknifing and blocking onramps and hills. Milk, beer and toilet paper are sold out throughout the area and it’s all descending into utter chaos. The Governor has declared a state of emergency and is recommending that we all skip work and head immediately for the nearest ski slope.
Non-natives are wondering what all the fuss is about.
