In Seattle, Washington, snow began to fall on the morning of January 31, 1916, and by February 2nd, the city had more than three feet to deal with. Shown is the Seattle post office. Not shown is the dome of Seattle’s St. James Cathedral which, under 15 tons of wet snow, collapsed and crashed 120 feet into the nave below. Fortunately, it wasn’t Sunday.
