SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — There’s a love-hate relationship across Puget Sound this winter. With more snow expected to fall across the north sound Wednesday night into Thursday morning, some people are bracing for a brain freeze.
“Well the snow is beautiful, but it makes it hard to get around when you’re not used to that,” says one woman who spoke to KIRO 7 News.
“I love playing in it, I love enjoying it from afar, I do not like having to drive,” says Taylor Aldrich, who lives in Snohomish County.
For several weeks, the north sound has been hammered with consecutive storms that have created major issues.
“We have like 3 weeks’ worth of trash cause our road and our in our neighborhood is a private road so we don’t get plowed,” says Aldrich, who has also lost work due to treacherous road conditions. “I’m one of those cautious drivers and don’t go to work if I don’t think I can make it. So, it’s a lost day of pay and all that.”
But the snow isn’t all that bad. Snowplows are in high demand so when the white stuff falls, the money comes in.
“I’m looking forward to if it does snow again,” says Paul Henrickson, who makes money plowing parking lots. “I don’t really like the cold, but I do like the snow because that means money for other people.”
