If you hadn’t heard yet, US 2 Stevens Pass reopened late yesterday afternoon after being closed for several days. Trees had built up a large amount of snow and ice, causing well over a hundred of them to fall onto the roadway. Warmer temperatures and less snowfall than expected yesterday caused the built up snow to fall to fall off the trees, removing the threat.

The Washington State Department of Transportation had planned today to see if helicopter ‘backwash’ could dislodge the snow but nature took care of it so that experiment has been cancelled.
