Here is a very real reaction to how everyone in seattle was reacting to the snowpocalypse. This story is going to be a roller coaster so hang tight because it’s about to ge real.

So lets start with when we got some snow before the Snowpocalypse really hit. It was the night of the Supebrowl, everyone was excited for this snow. Snow is very pretty to watch. Then for us UW students and some public school students and workers in the greater seattle area, some of us had school and work canceled the next day. This was the best thing for some of us. Especially the students since it was midterm season!

But little did we know this was just the beginning…. (DUN DUN DUNNNN)

February 7th, 2019 at 1pm is when the it all began. But before it everyone went to the store to get food and supplies for the disaster that was going to hit. The Safeways, QFC, Walmarts, and Trader Joe’s were packed and out of stock of milk and bread…

Then it hit… complete chaos spread around, people getting stuck and sliding on the road, buses losing control, street closures… we weren’t prepared

As the day went by, people continued to drive crazy not knowing what to expect on the road

Kids happy that they didn’t have school and making snowmen

College students celebrating that they didn’t have school, especially their midterms

A Lot of people were happy….

Or so they thought

After minutes passed… hours… days…

Everyone began having cabin fever…

This once marvelous thing began to be very annoying, everyone was begging to be able to get out of their house and snow but it stayed ….

And it turned into ice and this is when it got worse… people falling and driving even worse

Everyone was just praying for some rain and sun

It took some time but now its finally gone but the late assignments have piled up and the small paychecks are coming in… the snowpoloycse has truly left such a mess
