150 inches of snow this month — and falling

The heavy snowfall that hit the Cascades this month has Jim Ziolkowski slamming doors. When he leaves the facilities maintenance office at Longmire at the entrance to Mount Rainier National Park, he gives the door a swing that shakes the old wooden building to its frame. When he comes back in, he slams it again. It’s not that Ziolkowski is frustrated by the amount of snow that’s fallen on the park in the past three weeks — although as he’s acting facilities manager, one might forgive him for that.
