Most of Ballard woke up to a winter landscape this morning. Despite the 28 degree temps, traffic is moving smoothly on the main roads around Ballard, including 65th St. and Market St. climbing Phinney Ridge. Here on 70th, though, it’s a little tricky.

The snow began to fall Saturday night, at first a gentle dusting, and then around 11 p.m. it was coming down in big chunks, sticking to the roadways.

Or so we’re told. Update at 7:15 p.m.: […]

It started around noon as a rain-snow mix. Then at 1 p.m., it changed to snow. And a half-hour later, it began to stick around our Ballard home. So we jumped in the SUV with the camera and ran up to Phinney Ridge. The snow is sticking on the roadways. Woodland Park Zoo looks like […]
