Good morning! As today’s traffic watch begins, we have several notes:

EXTENDED WATER TAXI SERVICE TONIGHT: Because of tonight’s Sounders game, the West Seattle Water Taxi will run on an extended schedule.

FERRY REPLACEMENT: WSF says the Evergreen State will replace Sealth on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run starting today and while its capacity is comparable, the ES doesn’t have galley service or vending machines because it was recently mothballed and is being reactivated for this guest appearance, expected to last less than a week.

BLUE ANGELS: One flew in Sunday, the other six are due in around 12:30-1 pm today. I-90 bridge closures are Thursday-Sunday – here’s the schedule.

LIGHT RAIL FOR WEST SEATTLE SOMEDAY? SURVEY DEADLINE! Today is the deadline for feedback on the latest phase of Sound Transit‘s in-progress Long-Range Plan Update. Easiest way: This survey. (For more background, check out our earlier coverage.)

5:53 PM: Not sure yet about the westbound bridge slowdown – we’ve had two reports of police activity.

  8. The Sound Transit survey only takes a minute to fill out and you will see how poorly West Seattle is represented in the long range plan (questions 9). There is still time for West Seattle to be included in the long range planning (questions 10 and 11), so please take a moment to provide feedback to Sound Transit.

  9. My dog started growling about the time of the earthquake this morning – and I could hear another dog barking.

  10. Yes, we felt/heard a huge thump, wondered if it was a quake.

  11. I was working, didn’t feel a thing. Here’s the USGS map for it. I’ll write something separately http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/uw60828527#summary

  12. Piggybacking on Sn6uV. Fill out the survey. The ONLY reason WS is included in upcoming transit planning is because of our feedback on the survey. I was shocked to hear this from a Sound Transit rep at a recent meeting.

  13. I filled out the survey, I encourage others to do the same. Wouldn’t it be nice to get on the subway and be downtown in the morning? Instead of sitting on the damn bridge?
