Here’s your warning: all the weather nerds are predicting a “large snow event” starting Tuesday night and continuing into Wednesday and Thursday. We could see anywhere from 6 – 12 inches here in Seattle (and 3 to 4 feet in the mountains) without an immediate meltoff. So: do what you need to do, get what you need to get, and hunker down. Please don’t drive unless you know what you’re doing (and even then…) Even the busses will be crippled.
Guaranteed there will be folks down on Kite Hill at Gas Works Park sledding in whatever they can muster, so that should be a good time, and the local watering holes tend to have a festive atmosphere in a snowstorm.
If you sled on the streets, please block off streets and take precautions around even stationary cars (they can hurt if you hit ’em).
Make a snow fort. Have a snowball fight. Drizzle honey or maple syrup on snow and feed it to the youngsters.
And whatever you do, don’t forget to send us pictures of your fun.
