6:45 AM: Though some snow/slush remains – pending a warming trend that’s on the way – things are getting back to normal today. No school changes. Metro’s back on its regular routes. Seattle Public Utilities‘ trash/recycling one-day delay continues.

8:04 AM Crash on Delridge north of Thistle. NB blocked, says Twitter tip.

8:15 AM: Metro says the Delridge crash is delaying buses.

8:26 AM: SDOT says Delridge is blocked both ways by the crash, though the 911 log shows Seattle Fire has cleared (which indicates no major injuries). We’re off to look.

8:41 AM: SDOT reports, and we just verified, Delridge is now clear.

9:04 AM: Out on a morning errand run, we can confirm that Waste Management IS out picking up today. We’ve seen them in Westwood and Fauntleroy so far. Weather-wise, the snowmelt is accelerating, as we’re now up to a steady rain and upper-30s temp.

      Thanks! The National Weather Service and @westseawx both promise it’s temporary. Only rain here at HQ.

      It’s been only rain all morning here in Riverview. I see little bits of snow indicated on the radar for the area, but it looks like we are about to get hit pretty hard by warm and wet moving up from the south.

    I got a report from Admiral District it was snowing there as well.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
