Spring officially started Wednesday, but Old Man Winter isn't quite ready to ease his grip on Western Washington.
The National Weather Service said early Thursday morning that 1-2 inches of snow could accumulate in local hills down to 300 feet through Friday morning.
But the threat of snow isn't worrying South Sound residents.
"What are you going to do?" Deborah Hendrix said. "I don't care."
Robert, an employee at the Fred Meyer at Pacific Avenue and South 72nd Street, said he doesn't recognize any change in buying behavior with potential weather on the way.
And Norm Weist, a retiree from the Midwest, has a plan. "I just stay at home if it snows," he said.
Weist said he thought this winter has been "chillier" than normal but does not believe the snow will come.
And even if it does, projected afternoon temperatures in the 40s will melt any accumulation.
