A mere 2 inches of snow brought Atlanta to its knees this week — and adding insult to injury, the city has become a bit of a laughingstock on Twitter because of it.
Well, it may take a little more snow to grind Seattle to a halt — but not much more.
King County is not in the wimpiest category, reserved for places where less than 1 inch — or even just the prediction of snow — will shut down the schools. But the map indicates that we’re just one notch above that: it takes between 1 and 3 inches of snow here. And we’re the northernmost county in the nation in that category. Folks are even a little tougher in Snohomish County — it takes between 3 and 6 inches of snow to keep the kids home from school there.
The data for the map came from a variety of sources, and the map creator has explained more about it here.
