Seattle is even more overdramatic about snow than Vancouver

Feb 9 2019, 1:05 am

Just when you thought Vancouver was bad about snowfall, here comes Seattle.

According to AccuWeather, the American city is under a winter storm warning and is expecting heavy snowfall and winds of 30 mph (48 km/h) over the next 24 hours.

The American weather company warns that as long as the storm warning is in effect, travel will be “very hazardous or impossible” and residents have been advised to prepare flashlights, food, and water, in case of emergencies.

So just how much snow is Seattle expecting?

Anywhere between four to six inches, an amount that most Canadian cities, with the exception of Vancouver, would totally be able to handle.

And yet, it seems like Seattle has fallen into a minor apocalypse, emptying grocery stores around the city in the process.

Just look to Seattle’s Reddit page, if you wanted more proof of the wintery chaos.
