Travel Tips for Tukwila

SNOW STORM OF JANUARY 2004

by TEDandJAN

"Snowstorm of Early 2004"


Soon after New Years Day 2004 a big snow storm hit Tukwila and surrounding areas of Seattle. It is rare for the 'lowlands' to get snow, usually rain more than anything else. But this year the area was hit hard by snowstorms including freezing rain.


One day alone we accumulated around 6 inches of the white stuff. It snowed for a few days causing havoc and chaos for the western part of Washington State. Many companies were closed and most people stayed at home due to travel conditions.


By the 7th of January, Tukwila and surrounding areas experienced major power cuts which occurred at 9.50am and lasted till 6.15pm. My husband was sent home around 11am as his company lost power also. We made the most of the day by going out and finding somewhere with power so we could have a meal and a drink.


Once back home again we wrapped up warm and played board games and cards by candle-light. We also took some pictures to remind ourselves of that moment in time when Seattle was brought to a standstill. The snow looked beautiful and the frozen trees looked like something out of a magical fairytale scene, all frosted and icicles hanging everywhere.


The children took advantage of the school closures and played in the snow, but all around us there was also devastation happening with trees and limbs breaking off due to the heavy weight of snow and ice. Many cars were abandoned or stranded and many accidents were happening. Houses damaged by falling trees and/or limbs, powerlines snapping under the weight of the ice causing over 100,000 households to lose power. The snowy scenery was beautiful and many people forgot the underlying dangers it can create. The big melt is on the way now with rain forecast, and there will be widespread flooding to deal with.
