West Seattle Weather Watch: Afternoon snow updatelet

(keep scrolling down for updates and pix added to this post)
Big fluffy flakes now. Steady but still not cold enough out there to stick, even on cars. (37) 12:33 PM UPDATE: Kevin writes from Arbor Heights, 375-foot elevation, the snow’s “struggling to stick.” We’re around the same elevation here in Upper Fauntleroy and it’s finally starting to stick … walking out the door for a pic. Send yours if you get one. 12:44 PM UPDATE: OK, here’s our first one.


ADDED 12:54 PM: Thanks to JoB for this pic:


1:03 PM: Definitely sticking on the WSBmobile. May be enough for some snowball fights when school gets out this afternoon. (Spring break – ha! – is finishing for some of the private-school kids; Seattle Public Schools and some other private schools are out next week.)


1:10 PM: Some kids are out having fun already. Thanks to Karen for sending this next photo from Westwood. (P.S. We’ll let you know of any traffic troubles reported on the WS-bound commute this afternoon, of course; check cams any time here).


1:18 PM: Thanks to Sage K for these next 2 pics, from Delridge and Juneau, where it’s starting to stick. If you’re wondering about the forecast, seems this may not settle down till tomorrow.



1:33 PM: Thanks to “k” for sending this from Morgan Junction:


1:44 PM: From 51st/Hudson (map) comes this classic scene of spring vs. snow, thanks to Eileen:


2:04 PM: Snow’s lightened up in a big way, at least up here. Meantime, JenV sends this photo (thank you!) of frosty flowers, taken outside Buddha Ruksa (did you see the West Seattle 101 on WSB feature yet?) at lunch:


2:08 PM: Just in from Belvidere (or is it Belvedere? even the city has it both ways):


2:13 PM: Thanks to Trick in Arbor Heights for a new twist on the term “snow globe”:


2:18 PM: Snow’s stopped and the big melt has begun here – we can hear it through the rain gutters, and there’s serious drip action from the shrubbery. Some other West Seattle news has been stacking up in queue so we’ll get that going here shortly.

    Sage K: Is that your house on the corner with the dog? Or are you over behind it? We were giggling this morning on the way in to work because that dog was trotting along next to anyone who walked or biked past the fence. S/he was getting quite a bit of exercise just being friendly!

Sorry, comment time is over.
