So much snow that WSDOT can't plow it all  

30 feet of snow - In August

3 Aug 11 - With the roadway still buried beneath more than 30 feet of snow, workers at Washington's Mt. Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest are still digging out from winter.

The more than 50 feet of snow fell in the area and has been slow to melt because of cooler than average temperatures.

The Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) made the decision not to plow the highway from Heather Meadows to popular Artist Point.

The last time the WSDOT decided not to clear to Artist Point was in 1999, the year a world record was set for annual snowfall.

This year, snowfall very nearly reached that record, says Dustin Turpening with WSDOT.

Here's a video from the WSDOT filmed on June 29, when the snow still measured 50 feet deep on the road to Artist's Point.
