As forecasters predicted, the snow has turned to rain, converting the overnight snow into a slushy, gloppy mess. It’s a boots and umbrella morning.
For drivers, the roads are covered with slush, but most appear to be passable based on the number of mushy tire tracks in our neighborhood.
Some a.m. impacts
Seattle Public Schools: “As a precaution for the safety of students and staff, Seattle Public Schools will be running two hours late on regular bus routes.” And five schools that had previously scheduled early release days, will release students at the normal dismissal time: Whitman, McClure, Hamilton and Eckstein middle schools, and Roosevelt High School.
King County Metro Buses: Most Metro buses are on snow routes through 9 a.m. due to snowy/slushy roads. Expect some delays. See more route updates here.

Garbage pickup: Seattle Public Utilities says residential garbage, recycling and yard waste pickup will happen today, but some routes may start and end later than usual. So don’t be surprised if you don’t see your usual morning garbage truck until late afternoon.
