West Seattle snow: Wednesday photo gallery


Thank you so much for the photos you’re sharing! We’re setting up this gallery for the ones that aren’t woven into our ongoing updates – since this will be a day to remember. For people of all ages – above, Sarah‘s photo from snow fun on Alki – and critters too – Kerry shared the photo of “Chewy“:

Next, it’s Eve, who’s helping the West Seattle Be Prepared folks, who are running a “mini-emergency ops center” sharing some neighborhood information (check @wsbeprepared on Twitter):

Back to Alki – Debra Salazar Herbst shares the overview – including some cross-country skiers, if you look closely:

Also at the beach, Terry and his dogs were out early this morning:

All over West Seattle, a whole lot of sledding! First, Sweeney’s Plumbing (WSB sponsor) caught these sledders along the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail:

Jeff shares the scene at 47th and Alaska:

Gail T watched sledders from her living room in Fauntlee Hills – this is along SW Trenton:

Even with school out today, there’s plenty of school spirit! In this next photo, Chief Sealth International High School Cheerhawks senior Shayla Clement (right) and junior Merissa McEwan (left) “build a Snow-Girl with school spirit! Go Hawks!”:

Even the UW was closed today – but one of Debra’s neighbors on Alki came down with a case of Husky fever:

Maybe this was “cabin fever.” Kyle Bolton of West Seattle, captioned “WHAT snow day?”

And after you come in from the snow, you have to get dried off – Julie says her dog Harper loves the snow:

More sledding: JayDee caught the Charlestown Hill crowd on camera:

And while we’re getting a lot more snow-dog photos – this is the first snow chicken, courtesy of Craig:

ADDED 7:51 PM: More of the photos WSB’ers are sharing. First, more snow dogs. Kate and Tito Titus had to towel off 14-year-old Grizz after a snow adventure:

Here’s Tiffani‘s snow dog, Aspen:

Beatrice in Fauntlee Hills shares this pic of Tucker, exploring:

Different creatures now – from Bryan B, snow sharks in Lincoln Park!

Emma Airhart was creating a self-portrait in snow, according to mom Sarah:

From Anne Giroux, Charlie Douglas, Nichole Tucker, and Adam Cox – their snow creation:

Frank captured kids having snow fun at 37th and Hanford:

A colorful contrast at Schmitz Park, from Doreen:

And the snow-bound Alki Lighthouse, from Deanna:

ADDED 11:51 PM: One more wave, starting with Alison‘s photo of Harrison along SW Graham in the Morgan Junction area:

We’ve seen lots of snow dogs… but how about snow cats? Looking out from inside, it’s Katie’s BlueMoo:

Back outdoors, Valorie‘s cat Bodhi, in Seaview:

Now back to the snow dogs – Roxanna is a guide dog in training, 7 months old, enjoying her first Seattle snowfall, says puppy-raiser McKenna Kormanik from West Seattle See Dogs:

Another snow pooch and snow person in Rachel‘s photo:

And look what Ellen, Sam, Jama, and Katie created in front of C and P Coffee (WSB sponsor)!

Thanks for all the photos, everyone who sent them, and have a great Thursday!

    Are you sure it’s ALKI? Look at the PALM TREE on the left! Where on Alki Beach is that one??!!! Snow and palm tree look FUNNY together!

    During the 1986(?) snow someone created a T-shirt with “I SKIED ALKI” printed on it. Time to find those or print some new ones?

    I think that might be the palm tree left over from the Ira Finkelstein’s Christmas shoot ..

    Great pics! We just took a 2.5 hour hike from the Triangle up to PCC and back. Lots of people out having fun.
    Returned to our place to find a service truck stuck trying to go up our street. Yikes. Two very un-experienced drivers. And our neighbor came down to us to say he reported a drunk driver on our street who almost took out my wife’s truck. It was a man and a woman in a blue 80s Volvo sedan. My neighbor talked with them when they seemed to be trying to get their vehicle under control, and soon discovered that the man was stinkin’ drunk, and his car was full of beer cans. My neighbor called 911 and reported him after the man drove away erratically. For what it’s worth, the car also had long-expired tabs. Hopefully he’s off the road by now, one way or another.

    Hi, it really is Alki. On May 5th, 2011 Seattle Parks Dept. planted 6 palm trees between 53rd and 55th, that’s just before the volleyball poles. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=224641404218019&l=79da6b80a1

    Here in West Seattle I noticed that almost every pub had sleds and cross country skis parked outside. We’re a resourceful lot ;->

    OH MY this takes me back, I grew up near that photo of 47th and Alaska! This was in the 1950’s and a day doesn’t go buy when I’m terribly homesick for my old neighborhood. In those days there was a Japanese family in the neighborhood with greenhouses, real ones with real glass panes in elaborate frames, probably 7 or 8 of them, huge, and in the snow they were quite striking. The cold spells seemed like they lasted longer, so long that the icicles on the house eaves grew quite large! The traffic folks closed Alaska so we could all sled the double-bump all the way down from California Street to the bottom of the hill. Have fun folks you are making precious memories!

Sorry, comment time is over.
