Down time

SUNNYSIDE — While motorists deal with traffic havoc caused by the valley’s first snow storm, Harrison Middle School eighth grader Patrick Wise takes advantage of his first snow day to make snow angels in his back yard. Schools, the public library and even some businesses were closed Tuesday. Most workers reported to work despite the winter’s first snow to hit the valley. Sunnyside city offices reported late openings even as public works employees and emergency services were kept busy in the early hours of the storm. Overnight, the National Weather Service said upwards of six to 10 inches of snow hit the Yakima Valley. More snow is expected in the next several days with sunshine to follow.
