{26jan2012: more snowmaggedon 2012}

So the start of snowmaggedon wasn't too bad. By Monday temperatures rose a bit and some of the snow melted. It was predicted that the worst of it would hit Tuesday night. And it did. While it wasn't the 12+ inches originally forecasted, we did get at least 4inches, which for Seattle is a lot.
Since we knew it was going to be bad, Jason and I decided to walk to work on Wednesday and we figured we'd take Darwin with us because she'd like the snowy walk.

It was still coming down on our way in, and by the time we made it to the office my eyeliner and mascara was all over my face. Not a good look. hahah
We walked back through the Seattle Center and thew snowballs again.

While Jason was throwing snowballs and I was taking pictures, someone from a local news channel stopped by and asked if he could take some pictures of Darwin as well. You can see his pictures here. He got some fun shots!
There weren't many people out braving the cold like we were so we let Darwin walk off leash through parts of the center.

{more snowballs?!}

We still had a mile or so left to get to the office so we kept moving on and made one last stop on the pier by the office for more snowball fun.

No one else showed up for work so after a couple hours we called it a day and headed home. I was starving, and the dog friendly bar in our neighborhood wasn't open yet so we dropped Darwin off at home then headed out to the Mexican restaurant down the hill. There was a bus stuck on the hill when we went in, as and we were eating another bus truck showed up to help get it back down. It was entertaining to watch this worker in an orange vest pushing the bus down the hill (not so hard to push it down a hill, but once it got to the flat part, he couldn't budge it) and finally a department of transportation truck had to come and push it out of the intersection.

During that entertainment, Jason and I decided to build Darwin a snowman with an edible face. We stopped at the market to get some of her favorite foods. Then we got home, went up to the roof and built Darwin's snowman.

{mmmm he looks so delicious!}

After eating his bacon mouth, Jason popped out his tomato eyes.

Darwin usually just gets a slice of tomato when we give her some. She wasn't sure what to do with a whole one. She kept taking tiny nibbles out of it til she figured out what it was and that she could eat the whole thing.

Last she got Mr Snowman's apple nose.

And this was Mr Snowman's face at the end.


  1. Darwin we love your romping in the snow and your snowmans. We never built a snow mans or romped in that white stuff. Hope momma wiped her mascara before the news man came, BOL

  2. Hi Brooke, yup you guys got the snow. We only got a couple of inches at most so it wasn't too bad. I don't think that I would have liked driving in Seattle with the snow - pretty dicey on the hills. Anyways it looks like everyone had a great time.

  3. Darwin you are star in the paper! I can't believe you eats tomatoes and apples.. yuck. The bacon I can understand.

    woof -Tucker
