Definitely a dud of a storm for most of Whatcom County, especially Bellingham and points north!

I think it depends on where you are. On northern Olympic Peninsula, it seems to have been the heaviest. I now have about 20” on my property, and there were lots of wrecks and roads closed. It’s a lot of snow for this area, and most people don’t know or care how to drive in it. And, there aren’t enough snowplows b/c they’re not needed that much, except up in the Olympics.

The best part of the snow is the light reflecting off it...no gray gloom today.

Central Washington got it pretty hard, with I-90 and Us-2 being closed in places for hours - more to do with the wind causing drifts than the total amount of snow, though.

Weirdly, I think us up here in NE WA had it the easiest. We got about 3" overnight and it's now partly sunny. It's business as usual here.

Snow depth is always a cool graphic....and as you can see from the first one, the Fraser River drainage area (Lower Mainland BC and Whatcom County) is completely snow free. The colder drier air completely shut out the snow in northern Whatcom County- though the Chuckanuts, foothills, ridges, and mountains on the side and outside of Bellingham (including Sudden Valley, in and around Lake Whatcom, Padden, and Samish) had more favorable conditions (higher humidity and orographic lift) for the formation of snow, and received 2-4 inches. Anyway, good stuff- and fingers crossed that we get at least some snow before the pattern changes!

I’ve actually do lots of business with rodent raisers.
You're welcome. But if you do drive, please be very careful. We had some sun today and a lot of the roads turned to slush. Tonight that'll freeze over, so it will be icy tomorrow. If we get snow on Monday, we'll have snow over ice and that's what causes so many accidents around here. 4WD and AWD aren't going to help on the ice. Just drive slow, turn into the skid, and leave lots of room between you and anything solid.

I raised my mice for pets and for showing. I hope the rodent raisers you know didn't raise them for snake food. A lot of people think that's what I did. Er, no.

Grega, I can tell you right now that graph is off. It shows Poulsbo getting only about 3 to 6 inches, and according to my friend's picture there, it's more like 12 1/2 inches. LOL She owns a pug and a Pom and the snow is higher than both of them.

About 3” on Lopez but the wind was insane for 48-hours.

We have 12" of snow on the ground now, and apparently 4-6" more expected in a couple of days.

No snow plows or sanding around here, and the roads are all hills and curves so we're staying put until it melts. The mail carrier and garbage trucks can't get through, and no amazon deliveries, of course. It's very pretty, with tiny sparkles blowing off the trees.

The kids had a blast. Grandson got a big scratch on his nose and forehead when he lost it coming down the hill and landed face first in a pile. He whined for a minute and started right back up the hill. We ended up a McDs. 7:30 last night they were dead to the world.

I hiked back into the park on the trails. Saw a few people with dogs and a few on skis. It was beautiful out in the forest.

Cape Horn WA (well named for weather events !) Since cold air from western MT, ID, eastern OR and WA must fit through a very narrow vortex to allow the WET storms to enter. = much freezing rain (forecast for tomorrow)

Sunshine and 32F at the moment... today reminds me of 30 yrs spent on an Estes Park, Colorado ranch... 'shirt sleeve weather', snow is melting... FAST. Hurray, no need to bust ice for the cows to drink!
