We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Seattle and Washington as a whole have unpredictable weather. This most recent weather pattern has been a salient reminder to expect the unexpected. So here’s how the internet has reacted to Washington’s weather and the Seattle ice storm.
Coming in hot from TikTok we have Washington State Patrol working overtime to literally push drivers up Highway 18. If that’s not impressive, we don’t know what is.

Look, Seattleites aren’t the best drivers and that’s no secret but everyone deserves a little bit of a break when the roads are basically ice rinks. With that in mind, it’s probably best to not take your car out unless you absolutely have to.

Need an example of why you shouldn’t be on the roads today? Here you go.

Fingers crossed temperatures actually warm up this weekend. Until then, stay safe and preferably at home so you can avoid all the Seattle ice storm madness. Happy Holidays!
