Metro, SPU plan for snow – just in case

December 28th, 2010 · No Comments

The flakes haven’t started falling yet, but snow is in the forecast for tonight and Wednesday morning, which means the city and Metro Transit are preparing — just in case.

Metro is urging riders to check its Snow, Ice & Flood alert page if we wake up to a blanket of snow tomorrow, and also reminds riders that buses are on a reduced schedule this week because of the holidays.

Similarly, Seattle Public Utilities isn’t expecting snowfall to be significant enough to affect garbage pickup, and is asking customers with Wednesday pickup to put their garbage out as usual despite the forecast. So Maple Leaf residents, you know what that means. Unless you hear otherwise, put your garbage out as usual Wednesday night for our regular Thursday pickup, even if there is snow on the ground (unless we hear otherwise, of course).

Hey, and don’t forget to put out your tree and other holidays “greens” this week or next week for free tree-cycling.
