CHRISTMAS SNOW 2017: West Seattle scenes

(Fauntleroy Park, photographed by Jamie Kinney)

11:57 AM: Thanks for the photos and video! The snow just stopped, again, with more than 2″ officially on the ground, 20 hours after the first flakes, and it’s time to take a good long look before the great meltdown (already four degrees above freezing where we are). Here’s an aerial view:

A view from the water, passing Alki on a ferry to Bremerton:

Back on land, first chance in a while for some serious snowman-building:

And contemplation of peaceful scenes, like this one in Morgan Junction:

And in Seaview:

That photo was texted by Kevin, as was this:

Maybe if Al‘s cat Star knew there were “snow rats,” it wouldn’t have been such a difficult decision about going outside:

By the way, if you find (or lose) a pet today – or any other day of the year – remember that our West Seattle Lost/Found Pets page is here, and you can e-mail us info (with a photo if you have one) at Same address for snow photos, road info, whatever, or text 206-293-6302 … thank you!

ADDED 4:13 PM: Two more photos – the snow as it fell last night:

And another snow creation:

That one arrived only with the caption: “52nd Avenue snow.” (Added 5:21 pm) We’ve since learned that’s the skull’s sculptor, Sean Devenney, in the photo.

    I love the light that snow ‘under-lights’ things with….

      Great photo of that blue heron.  The reflective light off the snow casts a nice even light.  Natures reflector.

    Hopefully a new trend for West Seattle…white Christmas

    It seems like White Center received more snow than the Admiral District. Main roads are bare and wet.
