Salem gets some snow, schools don’t close

On Thursday morning, some residents of Salem woke up to their normal views of concrete roads and green grass, while others saw a blanket of snow.

Over the past few days, snow didn’t fall in Salem while plenty of other areas in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington got inches of powder.

The new snow was patchy across Salem. The capitol saw no flakes.

When considering the conditions Thursday morning, Salem-Keizer transportation manager Mitch Hamilton was up early checking on bus routes and walking paths around schools and decided not to call a snow day for the district.

While there were mixed reactions to the decision not to close schools, many in Salem were happy to have gotten snow.

Later in the morning, the school district tweeted that career day was going on.
