Move over rain, it’s a snowing’ on the Space Needle!

You know what this means: gridlock and traffic nightmares.

The usually temperate city was blasted with a snow storm today and it’s heating up the web big time.

In Tacoma, a Pierce County Transit bus slid down a steep hill and overturned near the University of Washington campus. Transit system spokesman Lars Erickson said 20 people were aboard, and fire department spokesman Joe Meinecke said 12 were taken to hospitals to be checked out. No serious injuries were reported.

From Seattle to Spokane, the whole state of Washington was dumped on, with several inches sticking on the ground. Along with heavy snow came extreme cold, too. In some parts of the state it got down to 19 below zero, with winds of up to 25 mph driving the wind chill even lower.

This of course is causing traffic jams, schools closures and making the countdown to Turkey day a bigger headache than it usually is for busy families.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Puget Sound area south past Chehalis and hazardous weather advisories for much of the east side of the state. Both Seattle and Spokane could expect strong, cold winds and up to 6 inches of snow by Tuesday morning.

In the light of such a chill, Seattle opened warming shelters for the homeless, who would otherwise literally be left out in the cold.

So what does this mean for Thanksgiving? Not much actually. Even though it looks like a winter wonderland now, snow never lasts for long in Seattle

It’s expected that Spokane will stay below freezing the rest of the week, while The Emerald City should have cold but sunny skies Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by chilly rain just in time for that food coma come Thanksgiving.
