The snow has stopped in Eastlake at this hour (1:40 p.m.) but Eastlake Ave. and the side streets are still slick and tricky to drive on. Use lots of caution, particularly if you live on a hill.
I just returned from driving downtown and the situation was the same near Westlake and in Belltown. It’s very pretty but if you don’t have to drive, stay off the roads.
Metro says that all of their buses are on snow routes at this time. The two Eastlake routes that are affected by snow routes are:
- Route 66: It’s not operating on E. Jefferson, 9th Avenue, Boren Avenue or Seneca Street.
- Route 70: It’s not operating on 5th Avenue S. and South Jackson or 3rd Avenue S. and Main St.
The routes for these buses along Eastlake Avenue remain unchanged. For more information and updates, visit Metro’s snow page.
If you have snow photos you’d like to share, either post them to our Flickr group or email them to me at curtmilton (at) comcast.net and I’ll post them here.
