West Seattle Snowy Day – February, 2014 from Jamie Kinney on Vimeo.

Thanks to Jamie Kinney for sharing the quad-copter production. On to the photo files – some are making snowpeople, some are making mega-snowballs, like Lola near Ercolini Park:

And this mega-snowball, texted to us from Riverview Playfield:

Also from Riverview, Kristin explains, “Here’s a close-up of our Snow Girl named Hur. She’s wearing the trimmings of our Saturday gardening efforts.”

Texted from Morgan Junction – after all the cars we’ve shown, finally a pic of a snow-capped bicycle:

Of course, the Seahawks’ Super Bowl spirit continues with a 12th Snowman – built by 7-year-old Reese Pedersen:

Husky spirit, too! From Al in Arbor Heights:

More photos from WSB readers – from Yma:

From “Smokeycretin9“:

And from Patricia – “Gus the Snow Zombie.” She says, “Our boys had fun and needed a little help lifting the body parts. :-) He is 7 feet tall in North Admiral.”

Quiet beauty along Harbor Avenue, from David Hutchinson:

We expect to add at least a few more to this gallery later this afternoon- thanks to everyone who’s sent photos! (Including the ones shared on the WSB Facebook page – go have a look, including the “posts by others” section – and in a comment, the other side of the “Snow Lombardi Trophy” shown in our earlier coverage here!)

ADDED 5:53 PM: More photos! From Laura at Dragonfly Pavilion in North Delridge:

From Leighellen, sledding with a view at Hamilton Viewpoint:

Doug B shows us sledding in Seaview – here’s Andy, with leftover Seahawks hair:

Jason spotted dogsledding happening in Gatewood …

while at Myrtle’s place, Ashfur the cat was NOT sledding:

Zack‘s snowpeople were hanging out on the deck with … a cold one. Or two:

Richard Snowman” is the creation of Gail’s son Alex, not only in honor of #25 but also, he’s celebrating his 25th birthday (and visiting from L.A.):

This next 12th Snowman (with friends) is courtesy of Brad:

And here we have Jon, Riley, Kelsey, and SuperSnowMan (photo shared by Katie):

We’re still going through the mailbox – will add more or create a different group, depending on how the night goes. Thanks again!

  4. That quadcopter footage is awesome! Does it have a GPS hold on it or something? Seemed to drift very little as it climbed. What kind is it?

  5. House a bit southeast of Lincoln Park, I take it, eh?

  6. Thanks for the compliments! The quadcopter footage was captured using a DJI Phantom with a GoPro mounted on a gimbal. The gimbal stabilizes the camera and allows me to remotely adjust the tilt. It is incredibly fun to fly.

    The Phantom also has a GPS that allows it to stay in one spot, even in heavy wind. It also enables the quadcopter to return to the point where it took off if I lose connectivity for any reason.

  7. OK, how cool was this that it happened on a Saturday into Sunday, when we weren’t all glued to our TVs worried about the Seahawks? And that we didn’t have to deal with school closures and commute issues? Just what we needed to cap an amazing week. Saw so many cool snow sculptures on my run today. You all are the best!
