I went out to the local park to take some photos of all the snow around lake Washington! Along the little walkway to the dock, some kids had left messages for us in the snow!! :D :D

And then even more tomorrow. :blobfearful:

(We are safe and still able to get to all the things we need to, but only 'cause we have an SUV with All Wheel Drive at this point! XD)

@mawr

Darn kids leaving their messages of positivity everywhere! XD

@mawr How's Jack taking snow higher than he is :D

@mawr Are you gonna be okay? That's an awful lot of cold wet comin' down up there.

@mawr Mawr if you need groceries or something I might be able to give you a rides along lake city way without worry. I can’t get up your way, but I can at least make it that far

@kobunny We're still mobile! It takes more than this to keep us boxed in. :D

But there's an awful lot coming!! XD

@mawr I was waiting for two small objects to go speeding by at the speed of corg.

@mawr Snowed in with 5in?

Seattle dosn't normally get much do they?

@Sir_Boops It's 5" on top of 8" on top of 5" all in the last 7 days.

Seattle gets maaaaybe one snow a year on average, and it's usually melted by the next day or two. Their snow removal budget is planned accordingly.

In addition, they won't use salt on the roads here because of how damaging to the environment it can be, so the snow gets packed down, partially melts then freezes solid.

Add to that the fact Seattle is full of lots of really steep hills and you can see how this is a Problem.

@mawr

> No salt and hills

Aaaaa ok that makes sense

Also TIL you guys don't use salt down there, it barly works here half the winter and there is so much of it I can taste it when standing next to cars XD

@Sir_Boops Yeah. Those are the main problems here-- that and the lack of budget which means a lot of roads just... don't ever see a plow.

I grew up in MN where they use so much salt on the roads that a lot of places have to re-sod their grass along the city streets every few years because otherwise nothing will grow there :blobeyes:

@mawr Mmmm turning every body of water into a salt water lake
