One of the funny things about living on the west coast is how people freak out when it snows. I grew up in Eastern Washington, so I’m relatively comfortable driving in the snow. The rest of Seattle and the surrounding area, not so much. I think the total over the past few days has been about three inches. And from the sounds of the news, it’s amazing people have managed to survive, they’ve been dramatizing the snow quit a bit. And apparently the people are listening. On my drive, I decided to count the number of cars on the side of the road, on I-405 for a two mile radius. I counted a total of 24 vehicles on the side of the highway. Some looked like they spun out but others, just looked like the drive pulled over and walked home.
