Seattle Icicles

Seattle Icicles

I’ve lived in Seattle for about 7 years now. I might not be a native but I’m hardly fresh off the boat either. As you might know, the show Grey’s Anatomy is set here in Seattle. I don’t think it’s filmed here, which makes a lot of sense if you actually watch the show (which I don’t – just sayin’). Anyway, some pretty ridiculous stuff happens on said show. They seem to think everyone commutes by ferry, and doing so only takes a couple minutes. Doctors who work 24 hour shifts seem to have plenty of time to hit the bars, and most recently, a doctor found herself being impaled by a massive falling icicle. It’s pretty funny to watch the icicles spontaneously break off and stab poor Christine but the really funny part is that Seattle doesn’t have icicles. It snows maybe an inch every year – more than that every five or so, but icicles take cold temperature and snow and lots of things that just don’t come together here. And then this last week, it snowed. Tons. And there were icicles almost everywhere. So I’ll take back my laughter at that particular item from Grey’s. As long as I can snicker about story lines involving sex with ghosts, I suppose I’ll be ok.

  1. I want to see a spin-off show called “Malpractice and Jail” where all the stupid characters on that ridiculous show are sued/arrested/beaten/etc for the dumb things that they do.

    Kelli refuses to watch the show with me because of my attachment to reason and logic.

    Icicles are pretty cool though, and they make a good cover story for when you nearly shoot your eye out with your bb gun.

  2. I love your picture! The icicles around Seattle are…usually nonexistent, it’s true. They were really beautiful during our December Freeze/Snowstorm.
    Grey’s Anatomy is absolutely ridiculous. I hope the show’s next feat of nature is a tornado or something equally ridiculous and on par with its MASSIVE, impailing icicle. Plus, as for Grey’s Anatomy, how many times do the doctors slip and fall down? Hmmm. I guess only when they need to impale one with an icicle. I will, of course, remain an avid fan and watcher of said show.
