Sure, we're definitely used to the rain in Seattle. Snow, on the other hand, is a far different matter. The Emerald City picked up three inches of snow between Sunday night and Monday morning, rendering area roads a complete mess on Monday and shutting down schools and businesses throughout the metro area. Monday's 2.0" of snow set a new daily record (an inch officially fell on Sunday).   For a city that averages less than seven inches of snow a year, though, a few inches of snow, especially during a busy Monday morning commute time, is a big problem. Most area schools closed due to the snow, dozens of flights were cancelled out of Sea-Tac Airport and thousands lost power. As of Monday afternoon, though, the snow was winding down and the city was beginning to return to normal. While the snow appears mostly done, it stays chillier than normal for much of the rest of the week, with shower chances back in the picture by Thursday and Friday.
