That hasn't stopped Seattle's dogs from making the most of the surprise snow day.
In Seattle, officials urged people to stay off the roads as traffic slowed to a standstill in some places because of the snow. In January and February of 1950, Portland was a winter wonderland for 29 straight days.
Andy Bollenbacher, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said this storm will be "as cold, if not colder", than the storm that passed through the area on Monday and Tuesday, which rained down hail and snow across the San Joaquin Valley, foothills and High Sierra.
For Sunday, KIRO 7's Morgan Palmer predicts a "quick-hitting weaker system", with a couple of inches of snow in south Seattle.
It's only the fourth time the area has seen 6 inches of snow since 1991.
Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency, saying everyone in the state should focus on staying safe.

The Seattle Police Department tweeted that additional resources have been dedicated to getting the homeless community to warm shelters. Only drivers collecting or delivering bulk milk products or de-icing road salt from FMCSA locations are exempt, the governor said.
Those stuck at home are taking a lighter tone to the Seattle area's predicament.
Conditions are likely to let up later in the day, but another storm system is expected to push across the area late Sunday.
A Winter Storm Warning for elevations above 2500' will go into effect 4 p.m. Friday.
The storm hit with snowfall from Sunday and Monday still on the ground, thanks to below-freezing temperatures that have gripped the area.
Those temperatures, combined with the wind, could make it feel like it's in the teens Saturday across the Seattle region.
Earlier this week, another storm shut down the city and left some neighborhoods with about half a foot of snow.
