I imagine this is also happening elsewhere, but just now at the intersection of East Denny Way and Bellevue Avenue East I came upon a hundred or so people throwing a snowed-over street party: music blasting out of an apartment window, booze in most hands, and all manner of sleds, skis, and snowboards cruising down the steepest part of Denny toward the I-5 overpass.

Pressed into sled service: a giant surfboard (seats upwards of five if necessary); the casing for the front bumper of a cheap car; lots of cardboard; several laundry baskets; and a green box spring mattress.
