… and fewer non-wildlife creatures are likely to be stirring, so we’re not publishing a standalone traffic/transit tracker today. But there’s a transportation reminder here along with other notes:

TRANSIT TODAY: Metro is on a “reduced weekday” schedule for the rest of the week. The Water Taxi is back in service, regular schedule. And as of last night, the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth ferry run was back to three boats (check here for updates).

TRASH ETC. PICKUP TODAY: If you have Tuesday service, you’re supposed to get pickup today – everybody’s delayed a day for the rest of this week (and next week, same thing, Tuesday-Friday pickup will be a day later).

TREE-RECYCLING PICKUPS START TOO: Today through January 13th, dropoffs or pickups – explained here.

PRESCHOOL STORY TIME: 10:30 am at the West Seattle (Admiral) Librarydetails here.

GET AN E-READER FOR CHRISTMAS? Drop-in clinic on e-books and audiobooks at Southwest Library (35th/Henderson), 2-4 pm.

POETRY AND STORYTELLING: Monthly event at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor; 5612 California SW) is tonight, 7-9 pm, with featured readers Rayn Roberts and Ian Hegwood, followed by open-mike readings – more info here.

‘WINTER WONDERETTES’: Final week for the holiday production at ArtsWest in The Junction, 7:30 pm.

YOUR TURN: Open-mike night at Skylark Café and Club (3803 Delridge Way SW), 9 pm.

    A relaxing, quick commute this morning with so few people on the roads and busses.

    Well, reduced service in Admiral means no 56 or 57 at all. Yikes. This sucks.

  • dq December 26, 2012 (11:20 am)

    That’s what I get for trusting OBA rather than WSB. I waited this morning for the 56 that never came (even though OBA said it was). Perhaps my commute tomorrow will be quick and relaxing as it sure wasn’t today.

    Incredible photo! And eagles don’t have to worry about commutes.

  • NWmama December 26, 2012 (2:18 pm)

    Is anyone reporting this poor admiral bus service to metro? I have, twice now. No response. It REALLY stinks! Especially for those of us whose lives are made more challenging by transfers (with kids, disabilities etc)

      Sorry to hear about the transit troubles. That same schedule is in effect the rest of the week – as per the link.

  • buddsmom December 26, 2012 (3:09 pm)

    NO 21 EXPRESS EITHER! Since there is no 21 local service into Arbor Heights since the C started, I agree; this sucks!

  • Bill December 26, 2012 (3:27 pm)

    The eagle photograph looks like something from a John J. Audubon portrature. Very nice!

  • Chris W December 26, 2012 (5:22 pm)

    At Always Confused and dq, just saw a 57 running downtown to WS. Maybe they were late this morning??

  • DaPuffin December 27, 2012 (5:00 am)

    I really don’t understand why they think nobody who rides the 21x has a need to get to and from work this week. This is a major impact.

  • big bling December 27, 2012 (9:53 am)

    yes, the 56X is now almost non-existent. does not run during the day (only during commuter hours) and never on holidays, weeks of holidays or just plain almost never. it has turned the north admiral area into a drive to work area. and we are only 6 miles from downtown. who knew we had moved to the burbs !!! :(

Sorry, comment time is over.
