If anyone is planning on going up 164th next to Martha Lake, look for a alternative, there are at least 5 cars unable to make it up.

Bussed it down for Metal Shop last night, stayed in a hotel overnight and bussed it back to Northgate this afternoon. The only bus running went through Lake City, so I had to get of there and walk 2 miles home. It was rather awesome, to be honest.

Downtown, Denny and Fairview:

This is during the walk home from Lake City:

I left my memory card at work, so this is all I got on internal memory. If I can find my other card here, I'm going for a walk with a joint and my camera later tonight :)

It was less cool this morning trying to shovel 15" of freaking snow drifts out of the freaking driveway so we could drive our freaking cars. Dave got out with the AWD van and at least the shit has stopped for now.

If you guys want to know how bad the snow is at my house... my Dad of all people didn't go into work. He hasn't called in for a snow day over the entire 30+ years he's worked at his job, PRETTY crazy.

I'm sorry about your Honda, Red. :(

I get to drive to Bellingham in this shit. The road conditions don't look bad but its normally only an hour and a half to get there. I'm looking at maybe three hours in my Jeep with a grouchy bird (can't leave him alone for more than a couple days) and a car fulla stuff for the cousins.

Glad I have the Jeep. Fucker gets around everything. Never got it stuck once yet, and theres a foot and a half of snow in my parking lot. If I chain it up, I can plow through 3 feet with it. I've been cruising around snickering at all the Volvos and Lexuses and Cadillacs and shit stuck in the snowbanks.

Sorry to hear about your Honda, Red. Thats a bummer.

Well, it looks like we got another 4 inches or so. On the bright side, it's now above freezing, so everything is melting. Of course, when it gets below freezing again tonight, we'll have nothing but ice. Thank the gods I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday!!

It's been 40 and no snow for the past several days. Meanwhile Portland gets snow by the buttload. WEAK!! :swear:

So it's snowing again. Lots of big, sloppy flakes. I guess someone recently rated Seattle snow as "crap". You know, how, like, Colorado is known for it's "perfect powder"? Well we're now known for our "crap" -- asymmetrical, globular, wet, oversized, rounded, slicker-than-frozen-snot crap. Somehow that made me feel a little better and I went and dug this up off the internet:

The Diary of a Snow Shoveler

December 8
6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9
We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the Whole World? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12
The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14
Snow lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life!

The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way.

December 15
20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer.

The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16
Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like heck. The wife laughed for one hour, which I think was very cruel.

December 17
Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere.

Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room.

December 20
Electricity's back on, but had another 14" of the damn stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Darn snowplow came by twice.

Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.

December 22
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white crap fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to poop. By the time I got undressed, pooped and dressed again, I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he's too busy. I think the jerk is lying.

December 23
Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she nuts!!! Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think she's lying.

December 24
6". Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the man who drives that snowplow I'll drag him through the snow by his nose and beat him to death with my broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been!

Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for the snowplow.

December 25
Merry -bleeping- Christmas! 20 more inches of the slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.

December 26
Still snowed in. Why the heck did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.

December 27
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze, plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he only charged me $1400 to replace all my pipes.

December 28
Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. THE WITCH is driving me crazy!!!

December 29
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30
Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver he is now suing me for a million dollars not only the beating I gave him but also for trying to shove the broken snow shovel up where the sun don't shine. The wife went home to her mother. 9" predicted.

December 31
I set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8
Feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

Wow! What a trip! We left for Wyoming first thing Friday last morning, a little slippery but not bad. Oregon was a bit treacherous with black ice and blowing snow on the road, but we made it to Cheyenne, WY in 2 days. It's nice here today, about 45 degrees--hung laundry outside. How unreal is that? Wyoming should be having the weather that Seattle is having!

We're leaving to come back Saturday...up I-25 then over to I-90 and across Montana & Washington. Unless it sucks coming that way, we may go back the way we came, I-80 to I-82/84.

Having spent WAAAY too many fucked up winters in tour busses & trucks, I would have to say that you do NOT want to be driving around in Montana in any of the winter months. I recommend 25 South to El Paso, TX and then 10 down to San Antonio, where it's currently 78 degrees.

I live in Wedgewood (just north of U Village) and we've been getting snowed on for the past couple of hours. . .sucks balls! :swear:

Be careful of downtown, I was down there on Monday/Tuesday and they hadn't scraped any of the roads so there's several ice pot holes everywhere. Kinda like off roading in downtown seattle.
