Cold winter?

 
I haven't lived in Seattle since June but I keep an eye on Seattle's weather to see how my friends are getting along. It strikes me that this has been a pretty snowy and cold winter for Seattle. Is that the general feeling or just the spin I get from the random times I look in at Yahoo weather?

HOLY CRAP! Someone, please, tell me where there are some good places to go sledding (preferrably, in or near Ballard) before all this good stuff melts away! I'm from Everett but I'm kinda stuck down here at my girlfriends (tho, I'm not complaining).

THANKS!

Hey Capital Hill Kids!

On Bellevue and Denny, there's a huge party going on, with a snowboarder/sledding hill, tons of people, music blasting, and the street is closed!


Come on down! I can see it all from my apartment window, they are sledding right below me.

So... Anyone know where I can get a cheap clip-on tie that looks decent? My new job requires me to wear a tie, and I see a tie as more of a corporate noose than anything else, and I'd rather not have the thing choking the life out of me all day. I'm also lazy and don't want to have to tie a tie every morning.

so, suggestions?

Hey guys. My friend's roommate is running out on her so she needs to find someone to fill his part of the lease until June. I don't know the name of the complex but it's peach and it's in the U-District. It's a 2 bedroom/1 bath and half of the rent is $425.

Snow Crash Videos!

This is how we spent our morning.

Don't feel too bad for the people involved, they were all total morons who insisted on driving up our hill although there are several alternate flat roads at both the top and the bottom. We saw 3 car crashes in half an hour, and even after they put road blocks up, people completely ignored them, only to slide right back down into the busy intersection. It was hilarious!

Bad Form!

Talk about rude!

The intersection of Bellevue and Denny on Capital Hill...after hours and hours of 100-300 people sledding down it all day,


Is Trashed.


Thank you very much for trashing my neighborhood. My boyfriend and I are now going to go outside and clean up the discarded sleds/broken laundry baskets/cardboard "sleds", beer/soda cans, coffee cups, and trash bags.


Anyone in the area want to help out? It really looks disgusting. We'd really appreciate it, and would love the help.

I hear there are the 'cool' parts of seattle and the 'not-so-good' parts... Anyone have any feelings about this? Where are the cool areas to live? I've heard meantion of the Bellevue area, but just dunno...whadda ya think?
static cling!

OMG

How embarassing...... I'd hate to be one of the many people the news is randomly showing falling.... Channel 13 just showed a girl in red totally falling down on her back! ouch! Hope you all are okay! Don't worry I am just as much of a clutz.... I fall even when its not slippery out :)


So think most of us will be headed to work tomorrow? ICK! Ichy Slush, no thanks!

sledding drama

I went sledding, along with half my neighborhood on Eastlake and Lynn today, was totally fun, 'specailly because people were v. sharing with their sledding impliments. (Someone lent me a snowboard to play on, and someone else lent me a huge inflateble intertube, much better then the cardboard i was attempting to use) Much fun was had until some woman decided that the sled hill would be good driving, even though there were sledders and peds all over it.

Us sledders weren't happy, and the spectators also werent' happy, and began to pelt the lady with snow balls (made from snow off of her own car) get physically in her way, and yell a whole bunch. Lady, then freaked out, and rolled down her window to call . . . the police maybe? her mom? I don't know, but she's just sitting there, blocking are beloved sledding hill with her stupid SUV. One of the more vocal sledders, thought it would be really amusing to lay down next to her parked car and pretend that she had hit him. "Ouch! my leg!" while hitting his sled against the ground.

Us spectators were amused, and cheering him on, while lady, instead of just driving away and giving us an evil eye, continues to talk on her phone and begins to cry. I get bored, and sled some more, so do some others, but the lady continues to sit there. Even the guy gets bored, and sleds too. Eventually people begin to disperse, assuming correctly, that the cops are probably going to show up and make them disperse. I was kinda pissed.

On the one hand, mob mentality kicked in, and we were mean to the stupid woman, on the other hand, she was driving up an obviously being used hill, and ignoring the fact that we were waving her to a side street. She also could have had a sense of humor that she was ruining our fun, and just driven away, instead she had to cause a scene.

In spite of all that, sledding was bad ass! Too bad we don't get more snow, 'cept i'm deeply afraid to drive in it.
