Mythcreants Invasion

February 2019

Seattle is finally getting its taste of the polar vortex, in the form of about 4-6 inches of snow. Naturally, this has completely shut down the city and caused panicked Western Washingtonians to descend upon grocery stores and stock up like it was the end of days. For some reason they’ve bought up all the fresh meat, which seems like an odd choice if you’re expecting to be isolated at home, possibly with no power. But ours is not to reason why.

No matter if your hemmed in by a few inches like we are, literally buried in snow like everything east of the Cascades, or riding this out somewhere warm, we have some posts to entertain you around the fire.
