SNOW in SEATTLE ((picture thread))

Seattle received 2" of snow today, an incredible amount for our city. I've yet to see a plow anywhere in Belltown, although I did see a fair number of shop owners out with leaf blowers, trying to clear their sidewalks. Some pictures from my walk with puppy:

Also, people out here can't drive in snow. Lots of hilly roads have orange traffic cones blocking them off.

lyra (lyra), Tuesday, 6 January 2004 22:28 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

there are NO plows in this city! which is ridiculous, sort of--this happens every other year or so, you'd think they'd buy one fucking plow, y'know?

but yes it's gorgeous. (and we need to have a Top Pot miniFAP asap!)

also, take your pick: people out here can't drive, period/people out here can't function in snow.

I like the dog.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Tuesday, 6 January 2004 22:40 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Portland is, like, completely shut down thanks to three or four inches of snow. Apparently there are no snow plows out here. It's quite amazing, there is a totally small amount of snow but everything is still on the streets.

And now I go home from work!

I just walked to Bed Bath & Beyond, it started flurrying again. BB&B was on the verge of closing "because of the snow" --it's less than 2" people!!!

My friend who moved here from Rochester is incredulous that flurries can take out the whole city. He was just standing out on our sidewalk in his slippers going "Geesh! Look at this, noone plowed"

Oh man, those snow pictures are gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. I love to see pictures of snow. I'd actually prefer to see the real thing around here, but, you know, snowball's chance in hell, that sort of thing.

And your puppy is adorable!

Aw, thank you Dee. I would pass along the compliment to puppy, but he already thinks he's the most handsome thing to ever walk the earth, and I don't want to swell his head more. ;)

Seattle online 911 log shows 13 motor vehicle accidents so far today:
http://www2.cityofseattle.net/fire/realTime911/getRecsForDatePub.asp?action=Today&incDate=&rad1=des

Heh, also: SDOT has set traffic signals on flash mode at hills, steeper grades and other key locations to reduce the need for traffic to come to a full stop. When approaching a flashing yellow signal, drivers should slow as they approach the intersection. These drivers are never going to learn how to brake in the snow now!

It was at least 4" by my apartment. We passed two abandoned articulated buses along the 358 route this evening.

Pork Charles, Wednesday, 7 January 2004 08:10 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

those pics were great -- wish i could have been downtown or on the hill but i was 'stuck' in ballard today -- really rad to see so many people just walking around though.

and yes, people here can't drive in the snow -- that could have something to do with the fact that i think this is the third time i've seen it stick in the 5 years i've been here, and also that yes matos, people simply cannot drive in seattle in the first place...

yetimike (McGonigal), Wednesday, 7 January 2004 08:36 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I took a whole bunch of pics in the Fremont area earlier today. I'll have to post them tomorrow night.

donut bitch (donut), Wednesday, 7 January 2004 09:07 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

The funniest part was just everyone in Fremont giving up and therefore just throwing snowballs at driving cars. And the people in the cars getting out and throwing snowballs back. But yeah, I'm reeaally glad i worked from home today (as i requested yesterday anticipating this)

Lyra, your mate would be lost in Buffalo. A mate out there posted pics on his site last Winter just after a snowstorm, where you couldn't see the tops of the mailboxes....or the parked cars.

(BTW, Pretty puppy, too.)

And I still plan to visit Seattle after seeing all those pics! I'm feeling brave.

M Matos (M Matos), Wednesday, 7 January 2004 23:52 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

The east coast and midwest people can laugh, but, see, most of the east coast and the midwest don't mostly live in the hills. That's what causes most of the problems in Seattle snow. You need to go uphill and downhill for almost everything in this town.

Well, still, the east coast and midwest people can still laugh, regardless I guess.

Lyra, our puppies should have a play-date! Does he like to play chase?

Snow yesterday was FABULOUS on the east side - much romping outside in the street where we live. Much snowball throwing. Much me falling on my ass.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Thursday, 8 January 2004 01:45 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

great pics indeed, d.b.!

the snow yesterday was the worst in 8 years -- i was actually surprised that like no one plowed into my truck parked on a fairly major thoroughfare, that the buses mostly ran all day, etc.

yetimike (McGonigal), Thursday, 8 January 2004 02:07 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

WTF was up with the roads today being unplowed? Can't they borrow a plow or two? The ID was the worst, 3" of slush on all the roads. Also, I find it a bit amusing that all the recent weather forecasts have to do 10 minutes of explaining what freezing rain is before proceeding to announce we're getting some tonight.

We had a snowstorm digital photos comparison fest at work. Some people got great ones of cars skidding backwards down the roads around here, and there was one of a toyota smushed into the back of the Real Networks building by a taxi.

Beautiful day, though. I'm leaving early.

Sorry it is not flat here. 45 degree angle hill streets = icy sheets of death and destruction. The city buses aren't running down our way today.

Also, see above, no plows.

My prof, who lives up in Vancouver, WA, said it was a winter wonderland up there, but although it snowed a bit there was no sign of anything sticking around here -- except the occasional snow-covered car driving by, mysteriously out of place.

Oh no, I moved all those pictures I'd posted up there! a few from that snowstorm are still on my webserver, just moved.

I was fine until I got to 85th and 124th, where the left turn lane was a sheet of ice. There was enough slush off to the center to slow me down so I didn't rearend the giant pickup in front of me.
