This is hard winter in the Northwest. Minus 6 at Burns today. At our headquarters, the backstreets were snow-covered from early morning on; the highways were worn down, but looking treacherous.
We were lucky. Spokane was buried under two feet of snow – to the point that simply moving around at all became a questionable thing. Most of North Idaho was hardly better off. And the snow storms, while not especially fierce, are beginning to feel never-ending.
Here a couple of snow pictures from around the region, from Chiloquin (about a half-hour north of Klamath Falls) and from inside Seattle, where this kind of snow isn’t such a commonplace matter.
