Sometime big changes pass you by. Tuesday night’s uncertainty about where heavier bands of snow would fall played out with Seattle and Capitol Hill getting nothing at all.
The result is a thawing city with most — but not all — things kicking back into full motion.
Seattle Public Schools, faced with still icy streets and sidewalks and short-days on Wednesdays, decided to play it safe and cancel altogether. King County Metro’s buses, on the other hand, are providing regular service.
What happened? The National Weather Service lays it out:
So what happened to the snow? Here's a quick summary. #wawx

Capitol Hill’s sidewalks and most side streets remain icy so proceed with caution and a good pair of boots. Also, it’s a good day to avoid your smartest “I told you so” friends.
What’s next? A flurry-ful afternoon and a windy night. But — probably — not a lot of snow.
