The weather has kept us busy in the Emergency Management Division. For the past couple of days, our state has been pelted by an intermittant snowstorm.

Those of us in western Washington live within sight of snow-capped mountains all year long. However, the bulk of the state's population resides within the Seattle-Tacoma Metropolitan area, rarely venturing up to the frozen peaks.

So when the snow falls here in the lowlands, things get slippery real quick.

The National Weather Service is predicting another storm is due to arrive this Sunday--the first day of winter.

This picture was posted today on the Seattle Times website's Photo Gallery along with the following caption:

"The scene from the Exit 9 overpass reveals motorists at a standstill along 405 northbound in Renton Thursday due to the heavy snowfall."
