    I'm here in Gig Harbor and we didn't get jack, but looks like from the bridge on they got dumped on. Would be curious to see some pics of the 6+ inches of snow people got. My brother sent me a phone pic from Tacoma and it looked about 6". Thanks!

    PS, be careful out there, didn't think it was so bad on the Narrows bridge, people were actually getting out of their cars on the bridge and walking the bridge because of the bad sticky snow...

    I always thought sticky snow was good. It's the slippery snow that's usually bad.

    Sorry - more cell phone pics. We got 7.5" here in Snoqualmie Ridge.

    Here's one of my deck. The lump on the deck is a midsize cooler.

    And here's one of my car.

    not much in sequim save the FIERCE winds, wow, lots of trees growing close to the ground now. we got maybe 1.5" on the level, not much compared to the last dump. the big difference this time was wind direction, due W. roadways out this way range from wet to pure ice, take yur pick.

    thats blue mtn in one of these (reflections from the window as it was too damn cold this am to outside) other two are looking more or less N.

    thanks for the pics. Man, you people in Issaquah got it bad. Too bad I have the flu, otherwise I'd be out with my kids driving to Tacoma to play in the snow!

    Apparently we got it worse than a lot of places. Took me 3 hours to get from Renton to Issaquah, only to find out all the hills up to the plateau were blocked w/ cars. Had to walk home - only took an hour.

    What I don't understand is people with 2 wheel drive cars still trying to drive to work or wherever with 6" of freezing snow on the ground!

    here up just 15 minutes north of the border we have about a foot of snow.

    what is normally a 10 minute drive home from work last night ended up taking an hour.....

    I moved to the west side of the rockies to get away from this stuff!
