All of our West Seattle weather is reported from "West Seattle (Two Dogs Observatory), Seattle, WA". Does anyone know where the heck this actually is in W. Seattle and why it's called that?
Weather or not.....
Here's a link to a map of local weather stations. The green dot in the north Admiral/Alki area is Two Dogs. Have no idea why it's called that. They are usually private/personal wx stations, so the owner possibly has...yep...two dogs :) Maybe they'll see this and explain :) I zoomed in for a close up look on the map, and it looks like it's somewhere around Ferry Ave. between 41st and 42nd SW.
Dear Two Dogs Observatory Followers,
We have finally just realized the popularity and importance of our weather station for our fellow community members of West Seattle and perhaps beyond. We are thrilled that we can assist all of you in planning your weekend, weekday, social and yard work days. Now that we now how important our data is for all of you we promise to do even better in making sure our weather station is rarely compromised.
Many of you have already deduced the "Two Dogs Observatory" name comes from yes...two dogs. Sadie and Jake are the perpetrators. Sadie is 15 years old and full of sass- much like the biting Northern winds that sweep across our beautiful Alki beach swirling up into our quiet neighborhoods. Jake is 13.5 years of age and likened to the unrelenting Pineapple Express. He never gives up playing ball even now as he battles cancer and the nasty effects of chemotherapy.
Lastly, there's the weather man himself who created the observatory website as a means of keeping track of the blessed galaxy above us. He is a backyard astronomer obsessed with weather as every moment there is a clear sky means one moment more of peaking into the galaxies afar from his high-powered telescope.
And with that last thought, once we have figured out how to post pictures we will share the amazing pictures he takes of our favorite neighboring planets, exploding stars and distant galaxies.
Thank you again for enjoying the findings of the Two Dogs Observatory! We will continue to be of service to you all.
Have a beautiful night in the clear skies!
Sadie and Jake
