Icy snow blankets area, school start delayed

February 9th, 2009 · No Comments

A thin layer of crunchy, compact snow covered the area this morning.

Seattle Public Schools are running two hours late, there’s no kindergarten, Head Start programs or door-to-door service today as well.

The snow is done for today, meteorologists say, but more snow could be coming to part of the region Tuesday.

6:32 a.m. update: If you’re a Microsoftie, or otherwise heading to work on the Eastside, 520 across Lake Washington is closed due to accidents in BOTH directions. Check your traffic before you head into work today (as of 6:50 a.m., one eastbound lane is open, but traffic is very backed up).

Some Metro bus routes are on snow routes, but none are reported in our area so far. Despite that, Metro warns service could be slowed.
