Happy Monday! From the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar – what you need to know about the day/night ahead:

TRAFFIC ALERTS TODAY/TONIGHT: Those who use Highway 99 to head downtown and beyond are driving on the new northbound stretch this morning (it opened Saturday night, earlier than projected). Then tonight, there is another southbound 99 closure – WSDOT is still working on reinforcing a section of remaining Alaskan Way Viaduct that’s over the future tunnel-boring zone – 9 pm tonight to 5 am Tuesday.

AFTERNOON BOOK GROUP: The Southwest Library welcomes you to the group discussing “The Deptford Trilogy” this month, meeting at 2 pm today at the branch (35th/Henderson).

IRISH DANCE: New class sessions (including Mondays) are under way this month at the VFW Hall in The Triangle – find out more here.

WINTER GARDENING, WITH SUSTAINABLE WEST SEATTLE: 6-8 pm at the South Seattle Community College Arboretum, you can get ready for fall/winter food growing by attending SWS’s monthly Community Forum – full details on the SWS website.

DELRIDGE PRODUCE COOPERATIVE: Everyone’s invited to DPC’s general meeting at 6:30 pm tonight, Delridge Library (Brandon/Delridge). The agenda includes a variety of topics from involvement with the upcoming West Seattle Junction Harvest Festival, to a future fundraising dinner/auction, to a market-research survey.

NIGHTLIFE: Pub quiz night at Shadowland, 8 pm … Flat Earth Society at West 5 features Matt Lukin spinning tonight (Melvins/Mudhoney alum), 9 pm … that’s also when Karaoke Kelli presides at the Benbow Room

  3. I’m thinking they may be sanderlings – forgot to mention that.

  4. When will the SB portion of 99 get the new lanes? (Similar to the NB segment) It is still configured as it was. (But my first impression this morning the extra NB segment really helped)

  5. Robert – I noticed that on Friday night and meant to ask. Thanks for the reminder, asking now.

  6. Good call WSB – Sanderlings they are. These are the little sandpipers that chase back and forth at the edge of the ocean waves. You can see them almost all year, other than midsummer, when they are away north breeding. A small flock winters around Alki, and Constellation Park is a good place to find them, although they range far and wide – it usually takes me 4-5 trips before I luck upon them. Being there at low tide helps.
