Are we snow wimps?
Are we snow wimps in Seattle and King County, Washington? Do we panic at one inch of snow? Well, two? Yes. A guy who calls himself atrubetskoy got the data on school closings. How many inches does it take to close school. He colors every county accordingly. We aren’t in the wimpiest category. No, in the second one - one to 3 inches. And we are the most northerly county in that category. Of course. Our marine climate: the salt water warms the winter and cools the summer.
