7:03 AM: No incidents reported so far in or from West Seattle.
REMINDERS FOR TOMORROW: The King County Water Taxi will be out of service Friday in observance of Veterans Day; also, no school tomorrow, and many other closures … Tomorrow night, the Battery Street Tunnel will be closed both ways, 11:59 pm Friday to 6 am Saturday, during paving work above the tunnel.
7:12 AM: Just in from Metro:
Transit Alert – Route 56 to downtown Seattle due to leave 61st Av SW & Alki Av SW at 7:19 AM will not operate this morning.

A Route 55 bus also was skipped half an hour ago.
9:27 AM: Relatively uneventful commute. But we also keep watch throughout the day/night, so if you see/hear about a problem your West Seattle neighbors should be aware of, please let us know (if/when you can safely/legally use your phone) – 206-293-6302.
One other transportation-related note: The Washington State Ferries Triangle Task Force meets 4:30-7 pm at Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW).
And we end on a cheery note – it’s a transit-related tweet from Jeremy:
This am in West Seattle, Alaska Junction: two tweens exit 55 & dash across California, ukulele strumming, singing — in tune — at top of lungs.
