The storm continued all through the night, dumping a record 24 inches of snow in 24 hours. Since official records began, Spokane has never gotten this much snow in a single day. When we arose this morning, we found reports of a city staggering under the sheer mass of snow. Every school district closed for the day, including District 81 and Community Collges.
Since Community Colleges cancelled classes, I took the dog for a walk by the Little Spokane River. I got some great photographs, but by the end, I almost regretted trudging through so much snow. The snow drifts nearly buried me up to my waist.
Two feet of snow nearly buried my car, but I still managed to drive on at least one important errand.
