Snow routes weren&rsquo;t plowed.&nbsp; There was a communication breakdown between Seattle Department of Transportation and Metro Transit officials.</p><p>The city&rsquo;s poor response to the snow storm is often credited with the defeat of former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels.</p> Tue, 09 Nov 2010 23:16:25 +0000 Paula Wissel 113 at http://www.kplu.org Seattle Lays Out Snow Removal Plans
