Schools have reopened and city services are up and running as a deep freeze continues from a winter storm that brought a thick blanket of snow, strong wind and troublesome ice to Auburn and the Green River Valley.
The snow and ice that hit the area early Monday decided to stick around as low temperatures plummeted well below freezing Tuesday. It stayed pretty much that way Wednesday morning.
The storm has disrupted the routine workday, messed up roads, snarled traffic and canceled events.
More snow is forecast for the weekend.
After two snow days, classes resumed Wednesday at Auburn schools and on the campuses of Green River and Highline colleges.
According to city officials, plows and maintenance and operations crews continue to monitor and service roads.
Some roads are icy. For safer routes, check out this map.
For areas where Waste Management service has been suspended, recovery plans vary. For specifics and updates as conditions changes, WM customers can visit wmnorthwest.com.
