The curtain has fallen on a windy day – fun for some, like the kiteboarder shown above, and challenging for others; some vendors at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market went without tents/canopies for fear the canvas tops would take wing and fly away, and a few almost did. So what now? The National Weather Service revised its “special weather statement” alert this afternoon, saying that much-colder air is finally on its way in tonight. Snow? Maybe a little, on the higher hills, the NWS says, but just maybe, in flurry/shower mode tomorrow. But the big point they’re emphasizing is that it’s going to be cold all week.

  1. Hope the de-icing trucks are out in full force tonight.

  4. This is the first time there’s been a serious snow threat since I moved over here in 2012. What are the best routes for getting up hill to High Point? I presume the SSV and high bridge are the best option for getting to West Seattle but no matter how I get here it’s up hill.

  6. Trickycoolj,
    I’ve noticed that Sylvan Way is one of the first streets to get de-iced. (Might have something to do with the Police station being at the bottom of it.) So I would go Low-Level bridge, Delridge, then Sylvan.
