Crews Reopen I-90 After 100-Inch Snow Dump on Snoqualmie Pass
SEATTLE (AP) — Interstate 90 has reopened in both directions at Snoqualmie Pass after a shutdown of nearly 24 hours -- transportation officials say the pass has received more than 100 inches of snow in the past seven days.
The roadway was closed over an 80-mile stretch from North Bend to Ellensburg due to heavy snowfall, trees leaning over the roadway and high avalanche danger.
That 100-inch snow total nearly equals the usual amount for the whole season.
Could be worse, though. KING-TV reports Crystal Mountain has gotten over 19 feet of snow so far this fall and winter.
