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.
