It’s a snow day in Ballard

Ballard woke up to 1 or 2 inches of snow, and we may see a bit more before the day is over. “The worst of the snow is pretty much done,” explains KOMO’s Scott Sistek, adding that we’ll see scattered snow showers through the day.

To the delight of kids everywhere, Seattle Public Schools has announced that school is closed for today.

The roads in the neighborhood are passable, but slippery, and snow plows are operating today (map). Metro is running mostly on snow routes. Here’s a frequently-updating view of the Ballard Bridge:

Seattle City Light shows about 10,000 outages, some of them concentrated near Shoreline but none in the Ballard area at the moment (map). There are several dozen flights delayed at Sea-Tac Airport, resulting in long lines.
