I guess I didn't believe the forecasters. Weather forecasts here in Seattle are pretty unreliable. It was below freezing last week but sunny. It was great to see the sun even if it came with a frost bite. Sunday was cold but the sun was out for the afternoon. I did notice a difference late in the afternoon but it didn't feel exactly like snow. But the forecast was for snow. Not a flake by time I went to bed on Sunday.
I woke up to NPR and the local reporters were talking about the spin outs near Alderwood Mall. Sigh. I really didn't want to have to deal with snow. I looked out the window and there was a good 4-5 inches in my neighborhood.
I decided to bus to work. I usually drive up to the Shoreline Park and Ride and catch the bus from there. We had about 4-5 inches but the temperature was just at freezing so it was slushy. It wasn't to bad of a drive and the traffic was light. The direct bus to downtown arrived right after I got there. I almost got on it but decided to wait for the local run which gets me closer to my office.
Bad move. It turns out that none of the buses were making it to the Park and Ride. I waited about a hour before deciding to go ahead and drive in. The snow wasn't that bad as I got closer to downtown Seattle. It ended up an easy drive.
And wouldn't you know it; I passed three buses! It turns out they didn't go down to the park and ride. Next time I'll catch it at Aurora Village.
