Los Angeles Times’ writer Kim Murphy’s recent article Snow wimps: Seattle is shut down by first real snow of the season began with “Color Seattle clueless,” and continued to poke fun at Washington state’s losing battle against the January snow and ice storm of 2012.
Northwest sportswriter Art Thiel has had enough, and fired back on Friday with Critics Of Seattle In Snow: Shut The Hell Up.
Is Murphy right — Are we wimps who don’t know how to drive in the snow? Or does Thiel make a better aurgument — is Seattle snow (aka Seattle cement) a different breed of winter-menace, and Seattle’s hilly topography doesn’t help, either?
