Snowbound Bainbridge — our favorite photos from the blizzard | GALLERY

It’s all just a melted memory now.

A few days of rain have washed away the remnants of the massive snowstorm that buried Bainbridge Island and much of the Puget Sound region under 4 or more inches of snow.

The early morning Monday snowstorm prompted school closures, late ferries and power outages that affected thousands.

Bad roads left Washington State Ferries unable to get enough crew for the M/V Walla Walla on the Bainbridge Island-Seattle ferry route early Monday, and the manpower shortage put the boat 30 to 45 minutes behind schedule most of the morning.

The snowstorm knocked out power to nearly 99,000 homes and businesses throughout Western Washington, Puget Sound Energy reported just after 11 a.m. Monday.

Relive the seasonable surprise here with our favorite photos, some of our own and some from snowbound shutterbugs around the island.
