Snow, in Mill Creek
Last updated 2/24/2021 at 10:46pm
Snow blanketed Mill Creek this week, giving area residents a chance to play outside, and city workers a chance to drive around in snow plows.
Vehicles were scheduled to traverse roads areas in Mill Creek as well as the Snohomish County areas nearby. Plows removed snow, and de-icer was planned on some roads to improve safety for drivers.
Weatherstreet.com reports that in the past two days, as of Feb. 14 at 7:45 a.m., the Mill Creek area saw 7.5 inches of snow fall. Snohomish County reported on its Facebook page that this is the most snowfall in the area since 1965.
By Monday, about 10 inches was estimated in the city, but it was still snowing at the time.
At the Central Market Mill Creek station posted on Weather Underground the temperature was 29 degrees at about 8 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14.
The PUD website showed almost 1,600 customers were without power on Feb. 14. But much of Mill Creek is likely to be toasty and enjoying indoor lighting. The city was planned with underground power, so often when there are power outages, Mill Creekers are spared the trouble. Many outages are caused by falling trees that take out power lines. Underground power is less vulnerable to outages, as a result.
