Snow!
It's freakin' hot. There's no way around it. While folks from the Midwest or Deep South will gladly point out that 90-degree weather is nothing in comparison to the triple-digit misery experienced in other parts of the country on a regular basis, all I have to do is look over at Seattle Weekly Music Editor Chris Kornelis and his discarded Filson flannel shirt to know we're in the midst of a seriously sweaty stretch.

While the weekend promises cooler temperatures, that's little relief for the crotches around Seattle currently rotting in the heat. In times like these, all one can hope for is an air-conditioned supermarket, a surprise popsicle, or a collection of YouTube videos reminding you that this too will pass.

While I can't offer an air-conditioned supermarket or popsicle, I can sift through YouTube videos of two-inch snow storms like the best of them.

Take a look ...

While a bit on the long side, the bright sky and snowy payoff of this video, uploaded by urbanmonk41, make it all worthwhile.

Seattle Winter 2011

Just like it rarely gets terribly hot in Seattle, it also rarely snows. But when it does it can be beautiful, as this video uploaded by curiousoffice demonstrates

Winter Storm 2010

Sure, this video, uploaded to YouTube by user 8t88tk is a little shaky. OK, a lot shaky. But it still depicts Seattlites sliding on icy streets and coming to the aid of cars at a loss for how to travel in the wintery conditions. Good times.

Seattle Snow Fail

Something tells me the drivers in this video, which was taken to YouTube by JonesAdvertising, prefer hot days like today over Seattle snowstorms. Or at least that's what their winter-driving skills suggest.

Stranded in Seattle

One of the great things about the snow is, every once in a while, you get to miss work because of it - as this video from user DemoSure reminds us. Sadly, bosses are less understanding when it comes to extreme ball/boob sweat.
