11:02 PM: The wind’s kicking up and that’s a reminder of the Wind Advisory alert that the National Weather Service has in effect for our area from 1 am-10 am Friday. Could gust up to 50 mph, out of the southwest. We hope this passes without problems; if your power goes out or you see other problems like trees across streets/sidewalks, after you’ve alerted the authorities – 206-684-3000 for outages or 206-386-1218 for trees/debris blocking streets/sidewalks – let us know too, 206-293-6302 text/voice any time.
6:08 AM: We checked multiple times during the night; the wind was roaring in the 3-4 am vicinity but there are no reports of damage, and no local power outages. The advisory remains in effect, slightly revised overnight to predict gusts up to 40 mph, and: “Winds will ease late morning.”
