Seattle Weather Whiners Parodied in Hilarious Snow Spoof (VIDEO)


shit seattle people say when it snowsNo one can stop talking about the Seattle weather. Or the Portland weather, for that matter. When there's any type of snow event or blizzard in a place that's generally unprepared for such a dumping, the hysteria and the hype reach exciting new levels. It's happening right now to our brothers and sisters in the Northwest -- they're not quite sure how to handle all the white stuff. The heaviest snowfall in a decade was supposed to hit Seattle today, but so far there's only a couple of inches on the ground. That doesn't mean there haven't been some flight cancellations or some school closings, though.

The bulk of the storm may have missed the city (it nailed southwestern Washington), but that didn't stop some creative funny people from grabbing hold of the latest Internet meme -- introducing Shit Seattle People Say When It Snows.

Once you get over the initial distraction of how much the guy's voice sounds like Ryan Gosling's, you'll be taken into the harried and insidery world that is the Seattle snow scene. Forget grunge rock, go to Seattle for the snowpocalypse remarks, slippery hillsides, and references to Subarus.

Watch what kind of shit Seattle people say when it snows and I'm sure you'll find something familiar in it, even if you don't live anywhere near the Northwest. The "yeah, I'm not driving in that, that's crazy" part struck a chord with this lady. Been there, said that. Enjoy!

Does this ring true for you at all?

Does it ring true? While it is true that Seattle is choc full of snivelling eco-hipster-yuppies with trimmed beards and a demeanor that says:"i may seem stoic and subdued but I am concealing a raging technological accumen and can multi-task the crap out of your ADD 15 year old while satisfying my wild side by reading The Stranger" , and many of them (mostly out of state transplants who prefer condos with boutiques to genuine Seattle culture) are griping about the weather...there are also many Seattle natives who distrust the predictions of our weather people as much as we do the WSDOT ability to properly deal with the snow so that,yes even 3 inches,is a safety hazzard. Also, our bus system is one of the worsed in the country, there is no parking or proper road planning, the traffic is hell even in sunshine etc...&j@)j& driving in this...

Funny thing is everyone I know is at work or going about their business this week like normal. My husband went to work and today I unburied my van and took my boys to the grocery. The only difference is that the schools are closed today. Supposed to be the worst storm in 40 years and we're all doing what we normally would do, just a little slower and colder. We're not used to it but we're getting along fine. Kids played at the park with friends as well. I just wish it would go away. We've got too many darn hills for this weather. We manage but it still is better when it's dry.

Haha, that's awesome. I live about an hour south of Seattle and we got close to 10" (and it's still snowing), but I saw a couple of snow plows and tons of people out driving. I have to go out tomorrow to drive to Sea-Tac and I'm not worried about it. I'm originally from North Carolina and honestly I think that video could apply to a lot of places there, too.

This video cracked me up. lol 

Send all that snow to me in CO! I missed out on the dumping we got right before Christmas because I was in MO. :(

So true! I lived in Seattle for several years before moving back to eastern Washington (NOT the eastside of Lake Washington) where snow is common in winter. My friends and coworkers would snivel at the lightest dusting.

Yup, I heard this all week.  Pennsylvanian living in Portlandia...people here see a little bit of white and the world is ending while I look on in confusion.
