Seattle doesn’t get much snow. But when the conditions are right (or wrong, depending on your point of view) inches of the white stuff fall on the city.
That’s what has happened this week, with Seattle treated to 14 inches of snow, with more to come. And the wintry weather caused chaos for travellers across the Pacific Northwest.
This video shows CBS reporting on the snow in Seattle. And as usual with American TV, everything is presented in an overly dramatic fashion.
Washington actually declared a state of emergency. Which is ridiculous. Still, the snowball fight at the airport looked fun.
