A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Washington In Snow In 2008 And It Will Never Be Forgotten

Washington has certainly seen its share of snowfall over the years, especially on the east side. And while this winter is starting to feel pretty brutal (even the Seattle area has seen substantial snow), we have yet to beat any records. That happened during the 2008-2009 winter season, when Spokane had its snowiest winter in recorded history. And while it wasn’t the most disastrous blizzard to ever hit the Pacific Northwest, it was definitely memorable for Washingtonians everywhere.

Compared to the rest of the country, Washington weather is pretty tame. But occasionally we are subject to some surprising storms like this one.
