Seattle Times letters to the editor

December 26, 2008 at 6:05 PM

The worst is over

Time for a breath

Take a deep breath. This is not a snow city; our lives are rarely impacted by the inconvenience.

Here are a few things we can all appreciate about winter in Seattle: a full range of health-care workers who made it to work; DOT [Department of Transportation] workers working multiple 12-hour days in a row; bus drivers, who don’t get much practice driving in conditions like these, yet do very well nonetheless; postal workers and delivery drivers, who manage to do a decent job despite the conditions and in the face of your foul mood; and all of the people who make it to work and serve us without complaining.

— Carrie Bowman, Seattle
