Snow Day...Yay?

Maybe it's not so great that we have a snow day today.

Reports are that over 150 Seattle Metro busses were abandoned along with countless cars on the side of freeways and roads due to ice and heavy traffic. Bus service is at 80% capacity currently. Cars still litter the streets.

Microsoft shut down their Eastside campus in Redmond, WA. This is the first time I can remember this ever happening.

90% of school districts in Western Washington are closed including Seattle and Tacoma Public.

Commutes home last night took four or five hours instead of the usual 1/2 to 1 hour. Bus drivers told people to get out and walk.

Hotels lowered rates and allowed people to sleep on cots for free in their conference and ball rooms.

Oregon fans leaving the Seahawks/Packers Monday Night Football game last night driving home to Portland are just NOW arriving home at noon, fifteen hours later. Seattle to Portland is normally a three hour drive.

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge between Tacoma and Gig Harbor was shut down in both directions last night for several hours due to a major accident. As was the 512 freeway in Puyallup this morning. And the I-90. And parts of various other freeways and roads.

High temperature expected today in Tacoma is 27 degrees with a wind-chill of 13.

High temperature expected today in Bellingham (North of Seattle) is 14 degrees with a wind-chill of -3.

While the sun is shining currently, as soon as it sets everything will refreeze, just in time for evening rush hour. Snow is expected again on Wednesday evening into Thursday.

Frinklin's office, technically a branch of the Bismarck, North Dakota office, saw absolutely no reason to close their Seattle location. What's a little snow and ice? So what if Seattle is located on various verticle slopes?

I believe that avoiding processed foods could be the first step to help lose weight. They could taste great, but packaged foods have very little nutritional value, making you eat more to have enough vitality to get throughout the day. Should you be constantly having these foods, transferring to grain and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more strength while feeding on less. Good blog post.
