Ice makes commuting painful; walking not impacted as much as other modes of transportation

Yesterday’s commute was miserable for some people – it didn’t matter if commuting was by car or by bus, it took many people hours to get home. At that rate, it seems like it would have been easier to get out and walk, which some people did that, leaving their cars abandoned on the streets of Capitol Hill and elsewhere.

As for this morning, it looks like most people have chosen to stay home, as roadways are icy and many bus routes are rerouted or canceled. The snow on the sidewalks is not packed into ice, though, making walking not too difficult, except when crossing icy streets. What has your experience been? Did anyone here just get out and walk yesterday?

  • I walked from work, Downtown, to home, Northgate. It took 2.5 hours but it was pleasant. One of my coworkers apparently walked from Downtown Seattle to Edmonds.
