Open thread: Snow!

We have 3-4″ of snow on our North Beacon Hill fence right now. How’s it going where you are? How are the streets on your part of the Hill? Beacon Avenue South appears to be slush on pavement right now. But I’d be a little concerned about the hilly side streets.

If you want to get around without using your car, Metro Transit’s Adverse Weather page is helpful. According to Metro, the 36 bus “does not have pre-planned snow routing. It is operating via its regular route and stops, but with possible significant delays due to weather, road or traffic conditions.” The 38 bus (which goes down steep South McClellan) is cancelled. The 60 doesn’t have changes on Beacon Hill itself, but it is not operating on East Yesler Way, 9th Avenue between Spruce Street and Jefferson Street, and on Olsen Place Southwest between 4th Avenue Southwest and 1st Avenue Southwest in the eastbound direction.

If you have photos of the snow, please send them along! You can add them to the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr, or email us.

And please do tell us how the snow is going in your part of Beacon Hill. This is an open thread for snow chat.

  1. Didn’t stop to take a picture, but at about 4:30 I saw a Volkswagon Jetta through the fence of a house at the corner of 17th and Massachusetts. Those hills are slicker now than they were then. Use your heads, because using your brakes may not work.

  2. Dang, coming home to a Jetta thru your fence wouldn’t be so great. We’re wondering if we could make it to either West Seattle or Northgate today (need to buy snow boots at Target!)

    Has anyone tried the trek either way?
