WEST SEATTLE SNOW: Monday morning updates, power outage, school closures

(QUICK LINKS: School closures/delays hereMetro bus reroute info here … SDOT ‘where plowed’ etc. map here … More traffic cams/links are here … No Seattle Public Utilities solid-waste collection today … Library branches closed …)

4:07 AM: The snow has continued in the past few hours and at least 2″ is now on the ground where we are.

4:11 AM: Just announced – Seattle Public Schools CLOSED TODAY:

4:17 AM: Also just announced – Highline Public Schools CLOSED TODAY. Continuing to update our school-changes list here.

4:30 AM: Here are our usual “live” views from the bridge cameras:

(Click any view for a close-up; more cameras on the WSB Traffic page)

5:06 AM: Big power outage – more than 4,200 homes and businesses. From the City Light map:

monmornpoweroutage

Again, we’re updating school closures at a separate link (see the top of this story). We have a bus-info link up there too – Metro has snow routes in effect everywhere and has canceled some trips already.

6:00 AM: The power outage is actually affecting more than 5,100 homes and businesses – same map as above but we noticed it’s actually showing as two outages, 4,200+ and 970+. Still 11 am guesstimate for restoration, but please remember, could be later, could be earlier. (And if you DO have power – charge everything! Snow like this weighs heavy on the lines and we might see more trouble later.)

Meantime, we’re hearing about scattered road trouble on the scanner – a bus got stuck at Olson and 2nd, for example. Thanks in advance if you note a trouble spot and either let us know (text/call 206-293-6302) or post a comment … we’ll only hear it on the scanner if police are involved. Here’s a photo from The Junction, about half an hour ago – chained-up C Line bus:

bus

We’re continuing to update the school-closure list – have just heard from more local independent/parochial schools.

6:46 AM: More non-school closures – All Seattle Public Library branches (thanks, Gina) are closed today, and the downtown branch has a delayed open. Also downtown, Seattle Municipal Court is closed.

Road closure – via scanner, 8800 block of 9th SW is taped off. (Power lines down, we hear.) And thanks again to everyone sharing what they’re seeing.

We’re continuing to get scattered bus-cancellation texts/tweets (sign up for alerts if you haven’t already!) – and Megan just tweeted that “West Seattle buses are packed.” As for the weather outlook – still a chance for more snow before the day’s over. The Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 4 pm.

7:15 AM: Almost half the people who lost power a few hours ago just got it back.

Meanwhile, it’s starting to get light, so we’ll get a better look at all the snow. If you have to head out – please be careful on hills – via Twitter, CJ shared this look at California SW between Morgan Junction and Gatewood:

Also via Twitter (where we are also updating at @westseattleblog), Jean-Paul sent views of The Junction:

If and when you’re out later having fun, please send those photos too (editor@westseattleblog.com) – we’re hoping to build a gallery.

Couple more notes: Along with Seattle Municipal Court, King County Superior and District Courts are closed today (not in WS but in case you have business there). If you need to go to Sea-Tac Airport, check with the airline first – some cancellations are reported – info and links here. And another transportation note: Boats on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route are running late.

7:42 AM UPDATE: Just found out after checking on an e-mail inquiry – if you have Seattle Public Utilities trash/recycling/etc. pickup today, NO COLLECTION TODAY – they’re hoping to pick up tomorrow – and that means one-day delay for *everyone* this week, SPU just tweeted. More info on their website soon.

Meantime, here’s our video update from westbound Thistle to northbound California, early-daylight view of the same scene we had at the top of this story:

And as for the power outage – still 3,200+ homes/businesses out, with the restoration guesstimate remaining 11-ish (but as mentioned earlier, almost 2,000 got it back much sooner, so hold out hope). Again, this might not be the end of it – so many branches and shrubs are weighed down with snow!

8:15 AM UPDATE: For those wondering about the West Seattle Water Taxi – just got this photo via text, and word that it’s been running just fine all morning:

PART951486396575424

Another road report from a spot with no camera views – from Randy along Fauntleroy Way SW near Fairmount Park:

And if you’re taking the bus … commenters and tweeters all say it’s slow going, with scattered cancellations being reported, so patience is a prerequisite.

Weather update: Still snowing lightly where we are. National Weather Service should have its next “forecast discussion” out within an hour or so, but so far, it’s predicting snow showers will continue.

8:46 AM: We’re in the middle of a pretty good snow shower right now. Definitely going to add to the total out there. From @MetPatrick22 near the city’s highest elevation (that’s Fire Station 37 in the background):

Power outage update – More people have theirs back (thanks for the tips!) – according to the SCL outage map, about 1,400 remain without power.

School update – Still some late announcements. South Seattle College has now changed from delayed to closed for the day; we’ve updated the closure list.

9:31 AM: Also canceled today:

20170206_072952_resized
(Added – City Hall photo from Vicki B)

The Seattle City Council‘s briefing and full-council meetings.

Locally, West Seattle Hi-Yu has postponed tonight’s scheduled meeting; new date TBA.

Any business open/closed updates, please let us know about those too, as we will be continuing to update throughout the day – launching a midday update within the next hour or so, after we launch a photo gallery (thanks for all the great photos people are already sending!). We have heard so far from Fresh Flours Bakery in South Delridge – open! – and Kid-Friendly Footwear/Again & Again (4832 California SW; WSB sponsor), “shoveled and open”:

20170206_085643

“And we have kids’ mittens, hats, boots and outerwear, new & used. Open till 7,” they report.

10:17 AM UPDATE: We’ve also heard from Conscious Choice Chiropractic – not opening today until 3 pm – and The Bridge, which is open. We’re wrapping up this report now and will be moving to a midday report shortly.

Updates from here are in our Monday midday coverage.

    35th has been getting plowed all night, but the ground gets covered again pretty quickly. 

  • Pelicans February 6, 2017 (4:26 am)

    4:20 and it’s solidly turned to snow at sea level, south Alki Point. 

  • WSobserver February 6, 2017 (4:34 am)

    4:29 AM, plenty of snow at sea level. Lincoln Park Way between the Kenny and Lowman Beach. 

    Snowing right along, everything covered.

    Morning commute likely to be a mess.

  • Deborah February 6, 2017 (4:56 am)

    Solid 4 inches in Highland Park. Power just went off and then on again….curious about trees going down. Thanks WSB for being the go to source!   Stay safe! 

    • Deborah February 6, 2017 (5:00 am)

      Scratch that, power is off!  Just went out, my husband saw the bright lights up on the hill from South Park, he said all cars stopped it was so spectacular…We have no power…guys says transformers blew? 

      • WSB February 6, 2017 (5:02 am)

        Thanks for the power-outage updates. It’s not on the map yet so we’re waiting to see how widespread this is, but we’re hearing from Sunrise Heights, Westwood, Highland Park …

    • D February 6, 2017 (5:01 am)

      Scratch that, power is off!  Just went out, my husband saw the bright lights up on the hill from South Park, he said all cars stopped it was so spectacular…We have no power…guys says transformers blew? 

  • LiveOn35th February 6, 2017 (4:58 am)

    Power just flickered at 35th/Barton. 

  • John February 6, 2017 (4:59 am)

    Power is flickering in Fairmount Park area… Hope it doesn’t go out. :-/

  • Rockergirl February 6, 2017 (5:00 am)

    Power out 35th and Webster 

  • Youngstown Flats February 6, 2017 (5:01 am)

    About 1″ on the ground at North Delridge. Seattle Schools closed, Westside School is still 2hr late start, anticipate that changing shortly. Staying home today with the kiddo & dog. 

  • Alicia February 6, 2017 (5:02 am)

    Power now off 31st and Webster SW – rare for us for power to stay down. 

  • Stacey krynsky February 6, 2017 (5:03 am)

    Power is out 30th and Trenton 

  • M February 6, 2017 (5:03 am)

    Power out in the sylvan ridge neighborhood. 

  • ElSuz February 6, 2017 (5:04 am)

    Power just went out in Highland Park!! Anyone know the cause or a status update? Also looking outside and appears we have a solid 6″ on our deck!! 

    • ElSuz February 6, 2017 (5:18 am)

      From the city map it looks like power won’t be restored until 11. Yikes. Not comfortable getting on the bus in the snow and ice, let alone no street lights! 

  • Andrea February 6, 2017 (5:09 am)

    Power out on highland park hill and Othello. 

  • Jillian Rafanan February 6, 2017 (5:12 am)

    Power out at 23rd and willow

  • Nicole February 6, 2017 (5:20 am)

    Any word on getting power back on in Highland Park??

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (5:23 am)

      As pointed out upthread, the estimated restoration time is 11 am but if you haven’t been through power outages here yet, PLEASE REMEMBER – THAT’S ONLY CITY LIGHT’S GUESS – could be sooner, could be a lot later. There are outages elsewhere in the city too so that could complicate things. And anyone who HAS power – CHARGE EVERYTHING NOW! We just got a call from someone who was trying to find info because their power was out and their phone battery was almost out.

  • HelperMonkey February 6, 2017 (5:20 am)

    power still on and plenty of snow in Arbor Heights. Haven’t been outside yet but looks to be 2-3″ at least. 

  • mike February 6, 2017 (5:29 am)

    Power out 16th ave sw and holden 

  • Wsgal February 6, 2017 (5:39 am)

    Any idea if water taxi still running?

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (5:41 am)

      No changes announced for the Water Taxi so far. (But Washington State Ferries has at least one boat running late.)

  • William February 6, 2017 (5:41 am)

    As of 5:40 am, Water Taxi website has no travel advisories posted since Jan 17th, so we assume it is running today.

  • Allison February 6, 2017 (5:45 am)

    Traffic light was out at 30th/Roxbury a few mins ago but has been restored. Power flickering. 4-5″ here and still snowing! Roxbury does not appear to have been plowed. 

  • Allison February 6, 2017 (5:46 am)

    Traffic light was out at 30th/Roxbury a few mins ago but has been restored. Power flickering. 4-5″ here and still snowing! Roxbury does not appear to have been plowed. Be safe out there!

  • Robert Goulet February 6, 2017 (5:54 am)

    California and Alaska

    Cline bus chained and ready to go. Streets are quiet with a few vehicles. 

  • Donna February 6, 2017 (5:56 am)

    2.5″ on my front steps at 49th and Dawson.  

  • Taryn February 6, 2017 (6:06 am)

    Street lights are out on my block of 29th and myrtle. About 3.5 inches of snow in my yard. Have power. Be safe out there! 

  • Trickycoolj February 6, 2017 (6:09 am)

    Power out at 30th and Morgan, 4″ outside. Can’t work from home now, are the roads clear at all?

  • Angelina February 6, 2017 (6:15 am)

    The Municipal Court of Seattle is closed due to inclement weather except for jail arraignments.

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (6:23 am)

      Thank you! That’s an important thing for everyone to realize … there’ll be many more changes/closures because of this, on peninsula and off … we’ll be updating those throughout the day.

  • Shawn Marie Shepard-Mate February 6, 2017 (6:17 am)

    How are road conditions on West Seattle Bridge?

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (6:34 am)

      Maybe we’ll hear from someone who’s been across it. In the meantime – the cameras are our best gauge. Have NOT heard of any crashes so far. And you can see live video if you go to the SDOT map: http://web6.seattle.gov/travelers/

      and choose West Seattle and a bridge cam from the list at lower right.

      Looks like surface is bare/wet now that more vehicles have crossed. The surface was definitely snowy when we started coverage at 4 am. – TR

  • 22blades February 6, 2017 (6:29 am)

    Metro busses with chains are now slipping in downtown. One gave up on Pine Street. Admiral was adequate at 0500 but please go slow, don’t build up a head of steam and keep your distance (25mph). It is not plowed. Haven’t seen a single plow since 0500. What happened?!

  • anonyme February 6, 2017 (6:35 am)

    Finally, some REAL snow!  Hooray!

  • 22blades February 6, 2017 (6:36 am)

    Elsewhere… Capitol Hill

  • Gina February 6, 2017 (6:37 am)

    All Seattle Public Library branches closed today. Delayed noon opening for Central/downtown library.

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (6:39 am)

      Thanks!

  • Mark February 6, 2017 (6:38 am)

    Just drove to SeaTac.  Counted about 15 cars in the ditch including a police 4wd, one jackknifed metro and two stuck metro.  Flights on time with only about half full

    • HappyOnAlki February 6, 2017 (6:45 am)

      Mark, was that on 509 or I-5?

  • CB February 6, 2017 (6:41 am)

    Any word on trash/yard waste pickup today?

  • 22blades February 6, 2017 (6:52 am)

    Leave early for Seatac. Plowing runways, Deicing & low visibilities will start “snowballing”  🙄 delays. I think I’d go the last stretch on Light Rail to stay away from the hills & vehicular pinball at Seatac.

  • Mark February 6, 2017 (6:57 am)

    Through Burien.  Spoke too soon.  No ramp crew.  Flights on hold.

  • M February 6, 2017 (6:58 am)

    If you can stay home or work from home, do it.  I made it from West Seattle to work at Northgate via 99 and it was good.  Just some slush.  My Barista at Café Javasti on 5th up here said it cost her $78 to take a Lyft to work today…….That is so frustrating when you’re public transportation just can’t deal with the snow. Bummer!

    • M February 6, 2017 (6:59 am)

      That’s $78.00 from Capital Hill to Northgate.

  • ambc February 6, 2017 (6:59 am)

    My internet (Century Link) is out. I’m at 16th & Henderson. It’s been reported with no ETA on restoration. 

  • RickB February 6, 2017 (6:59 am)

    UW has suspended operations at all three campuses.

  • Trickycoolj February 6, 2017 (7:04 am)

    Power restored 30th & Morgan High Point

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (7:07 am)

      Thanks for the update! Hope that’s good news for many – watching the map to see if the number drops dramatically.

  • Jb February 6, 2017 (7:05 am)

    Highland Park 11th and Holden, power just came back on!!! Hope it stays on!

  • HPMom February 6, 2017 (7:07 am)

    Power back on at Highland Park Way And Othello!

  • ElSuz February 6, 2017 (7:10 am)

    Power still out as well as Comcast internet at 16th/Cloverdale. 

  • West Seattle Hipster February 6, 2017 (7:13 am)

    Traffic accidents, cars in ditches,transportation delays, power outages, etc.

    .

    The snow lovers can rejoice today!

  • Gracie February 6, 2017 (7:15 am)

    Power is back on over here as of about 10 minutes ago. 16th ave sw and Holden area 

  • Laura February 6, 2017 (7:19 am)

    I tried tweeting Metro but don’t expect a response as I imagine they’re a bit swamped. So I’ll try ya’ll: anyone have any idea why they’re canceling 55s, 56s and 57s instead of running the snow routes?

    • Sue H February 6, 2017 (7:37 am)

      Laura, from what I have heard in the past about the 55 (my bus), they like to take our short buses and put them on other more important routes. Of course they won’t say those routes are more important but they always look at us as disposable routes here. The long articulated buses to not do well in snow so they seem to swipe them from us here. Happens every time there’s bad weather and it’s very frustrating. 

      • Laura February 6, 2017 (8:38 am)

        Ah, yes! Thanks for the reminder. Yeah, I think we all know exactly how Metro feels about us. Ha!

    • AMD February 6, 2017 (8:49 am)

      On snow days there are a lot of drivers who don’t make it to work so they have to cancel runs. There are cancellations on more popular/frequent routes as well, it’s just less noticeable because there’s another bus 7 minutes later (that’s jam-packed, but still).

  • Suzanne February 6, 2017 (7:31 am)

    Has anyone driven down 35th this morning?

  • Dinah February 6, 2017 (7:33 am)

    No power at 6th & Cloverdale (across from West crest Dog Park).  Don’t know if we have power at the Admiral Theater or not.  

    • Heather February 6, 2017 (8:03 am)

      Dinah, I live a few blocks from the theater and power is on here, with no outages in the neighborhood yet. 

    • Terry Clements February 6, 2017 (11:38 am)

      Hi Dinah!

      Klem and I live right below you, also on 6th. Do you have power yet?

      terry

  • Cynthia February 6, 2017 (7:37 am)

    I’m new to reading the Metro website but it looks like the 128 isn’t running on California Ave.  That seems odd.  Does anyone know if that’s the case?

  • Snow day February 6, 2017 (7:39 am)

    Power lines down across the street from us 5th and Thistle.   Seattle City truck was stuck on Cloverdale (this was 20 minutes ago not sure if it still is).

  • sunnieyes February 6, 2017 (7:43 am)

    We have power at the 2000 block of Calif. ave s.w.

  • Chris Witwer February 6, 2017 (7:43 am)

    I did just see a route 55 bus southbound on California near Andover. And a 50 both directions. Does anyone know what it looks like on the beach?? 

    • Julia February 6, 2017 (7:47 am)

      Couple inches of snow here at Alki, and it’s still falling. 

  • Shaoleung February 6, 2017 (7:43 am)

    6″ near Westcrest Park! Sledding anyone?

  • Chris Witwer February 6, 2017 (7:44 am)

    …And a 128 northbound.

  • Shaoleung February 6, 2017 (7:44 am)

  • JayDee February 6, 2017 (7:49 am)

    Metro’s posting about the 56 is a head scratcher:

    “Route 56 Express does not have pre-planned snow routing. It is operating via its regular route and stops, but with possible significant delays due to weather, road or traffic conditions.”

    And: “Route 56 Express is not operating on the Alaskan Wy Viaduct & West Seattle Bridge.”

    So I may or may not be able to get a 56, somewhere, maybe but if I do, who knows where it goes? Maybe saying where it is running would be a better idea; I am assuming the bus is taking the low bridge at least, maybe.

    • Anonymous February 6, 2017 (8:30 am)

      Do you know if the 56 is ever going to come? I’m on Alki I haven’t seen it all morning. The 50 seems to be running slow. At 7:40 the bus driver(50) said the 56 could be the bus that got stuck?? Not sure if that’s true or not. 

  • Lynda B February 6, 2017 (7:56 am)

    35th and Juneau to UW Seattle, no problem (at least to the medical center).  Started out around 635am.  Got to UW at 7am.  WSB was slushy.  North bound I-5 was good.  Grateful since there was little traffic.  After the Convention Center, it was wet road then more slush so watch your speeds.  It changes. 

     For those of you with a snow day, lucky you! 

  • Bus rider February 6, 2017 (7:56 am)

    Heads up buses are very delayed. Finally saw two 120s after waiting half an hour. 

  • SB February 6, 2017 (8:07 am)

    Stay out of parks!  Trees are heavy with snow and many branches and whole trees are falling. We live next to Westcreat and hear many cracks as limbs break and we see paths blocked. Imagine Lincoln and Schmitz and others are the same.  Be careful!

  • Kate February 6, 2017 (8:12 am)

    Anyone know if Swedish West Seattle clinic will be open today?

    • AlkiResident13 February 6, 2017 (8:23 am)

      I am wondering the same thing. When I call I get no answer… I called hospital and they did not hear of any clinics closing. 

      • AlkiResident13 February 6, 2017 (8:38 am)

        Computers r down at Swedish West Seattle but it sounds like they r open.

      TraciJ – It’s in the story – Seattle Public Utilities is NOT picking up today. Everybody this week will be (at least) one day delayed.

  • LiveOn35th February 6, 2017 (8:32 am)

      Sorry to hear that. Heard a Sea-Tac spokesperson say on a TV phone interview earlier that they were only getting a few flights out an hour. Good luck!

  • DRW February 6, 2017 (9:04 am)

    Power and cable on @ 18th and Henderson. Good 5″ accumulated. Henderson appears slushy but passable. Just wondering if the 560 from Westwood is on time. Didn’t appear on a snow route schedule. Thanks! Stay safe West Seattleites!

  • Alan February 6, 2017 (9:07 am)

    Being retired, I was looking forward to just enjoying the snow. We have a yard full of plants and trees that are getting flattened by the snow. Already we have a magnolia that broke at the top and multiple breaks on a corkscrew willow. There is going to be a mess to clean up after this melts.

  • sunnieyes February 6, 2017 (9:11 am)

    Any news regarding mail delivery today?

    • WSB February 6, 2017 (9:19 am)

      Would likely take worse than this to cancel – remember the unofficial motto … not seeing anything so far, at any rate.

  • Snow day February 6, 2017 (9:14 am)

    Power lines down in our neighbors driveway in Highland Park. 

    • chemist February 6, 2017 (9:49 am)

      My understanding is, even if it’s not a power line but comcast/centurylink/whatever, you’re supposed to report it to the power company and they’ll contact the appropriate response crew.

    Just drove in to SODO.  No issues.  Fauntleroy is fine and the bridge is pretty much clear.  Let’s be careful out there, folks.

    Power out in Arbor Heights. Big bang at 9:30am. Guessing the transformer blew at approx 11200 block 35th SW.

    I love how everyone is pitching in with info and helping everyone out. I have to say, the West Seattle Blog and West Seattle residents really are the best!

    Transformer in Arbor Heights is right outside my kitchen window. I heard it blow, but our power is still on :)

  • Jodilyn February 6, 2017 (10:06 am)

    Still no power at 8600 block of 11th Ave SW.

    Down here in the SODO area, right across from SCL and it is still snowing pretty good. UGH hope we have power at home otherwise we’ll have a couple of very mad kitty cats because it won’t be a balmy 71′ in the house for them!!! LOL!

    Made it to Alki and back by bus.

    Pharmaca is open 9-8 today, we have chocolate and hot tea samples!

    Too bad the libraries are closed.  This is a perfect day for a cup of cocoa and a good book.  Just finished “Versailles: a Biography of a Palace”, and now out of reading material.  So sad.

    Time for walkies!

    Power back off after being on since 7:15 in Highland Park.

  • Carmen Ficarra February 6, 2017 (10:35 am)

    I’m looking for info on driving conditions up Roxbury and down to South Park. Checked wadot.gov, but not finding anything signficant. Heck of a day to have a scheduled car repair!

  • Carmen Ficarra February 6, 2017 (10:37 am)

    I meant anything specific

    Thanks. /cf

  • HPMom February 6, 2017 (10:38 am)

    Yep, power just went out again in last couple minutes here off highland park way and othello. Booooo….

    Remember shoveling snow is deceptively difficult. After coming in from shoveling my driveway my heart rate continued to climb and I’m young and in fair health. Ask for help. Take breaks. Do not over exert yourself. I just wanted to make sure my driveway didn’t become the defacto sledding hill for the kids in my alley. 

  • JJ February 6, 2017 (10:39 am)

    Power came on for a hot second then it went back off over on 16th and Trenton. 

  • Bee February 6, 2017 (11:02 am)

    Heavy snow, power out again, and tree branches breaking on Puget Ridge at 11am.

  • ElSuz February 6, 2017 (12:24 pm)

    Still no power at 16th/Cloverdale on the east side of the street. We’ve been at Noble Barton down the road as 16th is drivable. They have power and free wifi!! Any updates from city light about fixing the rest of the power?? Can’t believe ours has been out since 5 a.m. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
