Snow began falling the week after finals finished and in very unsusual weather for the Puget Sound region, just didn't seem to want to stop.
While official records are spotty,
December, 2008, likely takes top spot for the most sustained snowy period im memory. Snow and icy conditions forced the college to close all campuses and activities

A small break in the flakes allowed faciltiies employees to get a very early start on Dec. 23, clearing walkways and plowing roads to allow a 10 a.m. late start on the day before Christmas Eve. Even with the great work, relatively few employees managed to get to work due to continued poor road conditions and limited transit service throughout the region.
With the prospect for more snow and a white Christmas, it looks like the prospect for more weather-related schedule changes is good.
