Not likely tonight http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-snow-not-likely-tonight/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-snow-not-likely-tonight/#comments Sat, 29 Nov 2014 05:13:15 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293539 Just a quick weather note in case you are wondering: While the regional “winter weather advisory” mentioned in our earlier storm coverage is now in effect, the Arctic air that was headed south is reported to have slowed down. So the temperature has held steady in the upper 30s since mid-afternoon, and even the convergence zone north of the city isn’t likely to see any snow before morning. Bottom line, if you’re worried about getting around in the city late tonight/in the wee hours, it does NOT look like you’ll find icy roads, let alone snow.

Here’s the remembrance that’s being shared:

Kerrie Manolovitz Yeasting of Seattle died Thursday, November 20, 2014.

Kerrie was born on June 20, 1970 in Kodiak, Alaska. She loved the outdoors and exploring and photographing nature. Kerrie moved to West Seattle as a teenager and graduated from Seattle Lutheran High School. She went on to start a family in West Seattle, where she was active in co-op preschool and Alki Elementary PTA leadership for her boys Owen and Vic. She worked in business administration and human resources, and briefly owned the children’s store Chickadees in the West Seattle Junction. She recently moved from Seattle to North Bend, and spent the last couple months traveling through the Southwestern United States with her partner Scott.

Kerrie is survived by her two sons Owen and Victor Yeasting, mother Suzanne Carney, father Ken Manolovitz, brother Quint Manolovitz, sisters Annissa Manolovitz and Joi Bommarito-Lee, grandmother Phyllis Frederickson, partner Scott Robertson, ex-husband John Yeasting, and all of their extended families and the larger community of friends who will forever miss her and the indelible mark she left on many lives.

Services will be held at 2 pm, Sunday, November 30, 2014, at The Hall at Fauntleroy, and will include a celebration of life reception.

At the Duwamish Tribe Longhouse in West Seattle, this year’s Native Holiday Gift Fair looked to us to be bigger than ever. Just one hour to go today, but you also have tomorrow and Sunday to browse/shop, 10 am-4:30 pm both days. You’ll find some of the artists working at their tables, like S’Klallam/Navajo carver Jimmy Price:

Coast Salish artist Peter Boome was talking with shoppers when we passed his table:

Pamela Coello‘s creations included these gifts no Seahawks fan could resist:

Many other materials/media are represented, including wearables. You can enjoy lunch at the Longhouse too; one big table inside is set aside for dining, and the menu posted on the Longhouse door mentioned two types of soup for $2, three types of pie for $1, and the famous frybread for $3. The longhouse is at 4705 W. Marginal Way SW.

West Seattle Weather Watch: High tide swamps Alki; Delridge ramp flooded; possible snow http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-high-tide-swamps-alki/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-high-tide-swamps-alki/#comments Fri, 28 Nov 2014 18:14:52 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293489 (SCROLL DOWN for newest photos, info)

10:14 AM: We’ve been mentioning water woes on local roads in our ongoing traffic/weather report – and now, check this out! Thanks to Mike Mulligan for sharing the views from Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza and Alki Bathhouse as wind and rain combined with a 12.3-foot high tide this morning.

Reminds us of the big surge back in December 2012. This morning’s tide peaked at 9:41 am, and the rain is letting up a bit, but we’re off to check on some of this morning’s other reported swamped spots.

11:56 AM UPDATE: Just back.

(WSB photos/video from here on)
Even an hour and a half after high tide, the Alki Bathhouse/promenade was still getting deluged, as our Instagram clip shows:


To the east at Seacrest, very high water – the floating dock for the water taxi is almost up to the level of the fishing pier:

Perhaps lucky the Water Taxi’s not running today (extra holiday) – that would be a wild ride. You’ll also notice if you’re in that area, Elliott Bay has a taupe tinge to it today with so much stormwater rushing in. Meantime, back on the roads/paths, the Delridge onramp to the bridge is still flooded and closed:

If you veer to the left, you’ll find another spot of high water on that side of the road, too. And while traveling the peninsula’s periphery, we noticed numerous flooded spots – thanks to the texter who pointed us to this one, Fauntleroy Way between Raymond and Findlay:

Wherever you’re going – be careful, as some of the deep-water spots aren’t visible until you get right up to their edge. We’ll continue to update throughout the day; let us know if you’re seeing new troublespots (text/voice 206-293-6302 – thank you!).

1:50 PM: Just back from a journey through eastern West Seattle. A firefighter (we didn’t see which engine, and it’s not on the 911 list) was wading into the Delridge onramp mess – a WSB Facebook commenter says cars are now getting around the water and onto the bridge (we’ll check back before dusk). Along Delridge itself, deep water at intersections including Holden and Myrtle, on the northbound side; also the usual big puddle on southbound West Marginal Way just north of the Highland Park Way hill.

4:07 PM: Commenter Chuck says the ramp is open now. Meantime, the newest weather alert is out, and it’s a “winter weather advisory” for 9 pm tonight until 11 am tomorrow, still suggesting some snow – though it sounds far more likely north of Seattle, than here, but be ready anyway!

Thanksgiving Day extra: West Seattle reasons for thankfulness http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/thanksgiving-day-extra-west-seattle-reasons-for-thankfulness/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/thanksgiving-day-extra-west-seattle-reasons-for-thankfulness/#comments Fri, 28 Nov 2014 06:58:10 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293457 (EDITOR’S NOTE: As we wrap up this day devoted to thankfulness, we bring you this story by West Seattle writer Lori Hinton – author of West Seattle 101, with highlights featured here on WSB – looking at some of your neighbors and their reasons for thanks. This was first published on the West Seattle Junction Association website.)

Special to West Seattle Blog

On a bright, crisp fall day, stroll the streets of The Junction and you’ll find West Seattlelites are eager to share their sunny dispositions. Ask them what they’re thankful for, and many will smile and tell you they are just happy to be here.

“I am thankful for the smell of the salt water in the air on the way in to work,“ beams Katie Barnhardt of Northwest Art & Frame.

Local bike rider Ed Lebel says, “I’m thankful that my dad was raised here so I was too.” Lebel loves to ride what he calls the “tour de West Seattle” around the beach.

“I am thankful for Lincoln Park and all the natural spaces in West Seattle,” smiles resident Maija Wade. “We have two kids and we love it here!”

But on top of being thankful for our amazing nature with beaches, parks, and recreational opportunities galore, West Seattle has something more: Heart.

“I was born and raised in West Seattle, and I’m thankful that I can spend time with my family here,” says Kori Ball. “It’s like a small town within a big city. Everyone knows each other.”

And while West Seattle is full of proud multigenerational families, you don’t have to be a Westside native to feel the love.

“We moved here from the East Coast to be closer to my beautiful grandson,” says CapersKassie Hennessey. “I live and work in The Junction and coming to work here feels like family. Customers come in and reminisce, and they’re like family too. I am thankful to feel a part of something like I do here, it makes me giddy.”

Fellow employee Joey Shearer-Harvey agrees. “We moved here from L.A. and my kids and I call it Mayberry. I am also thankful that everything is right here in The Junction. In L.A., I could never walk to the post office, then the grocery store, and go shopping on my way home.”

Working where you live and living where you work is huge. A two-block commute is definitely something to be thankful for.

“I’m thankful that I live AND work here in The Junction,” says Wolfgang Ratzlaff of Easy Street Records. “That, and I work at THE coolest place in West Seattle, maybe in the whole city!”

It’s a community that supports its neighbors. Sure it’s got your neighborhood pub. But it also has your best friend’s coffee shop, your uncle’s 90-year-old delicatessen, and your dog’s favorite treat stop — where the entire staff knows him by name.

“I am thankful for West Seattle and The Junction specifically,” smiles Will Valentine as he pets Squish the cat at Next to Nature. “I love to work here with these cats knowing we are taking care of them while introducing them to families who can adopt them.”

It’s people and places like this that make the popular “I (Heart) West Seattle” bumper sticker ring true for so many.

So this year, when you reflect on what you’re grateful for, join your neighbors to give thanks for living (and, for some, living and working) in a community with heart.

Update: Thanksgiving night power outage to the south http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/thanksgiving-night-power-outage-mostly-to-the-south/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/thanksgiving-night-power-outage-mostly-to-the-south/#comments Fri, 28 Nov 2014 05:05:58 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293449

9:05 PM: One spot of easternmost West Seattle is part of a big power outage that otherwise is mostly southeast of West Seattle. The City Light map shows more than 3,400 homes/businesses out in eastern White Center, Top Hat, and parts of Burien. No word yet on the cause or estimated restoration.

9:31 PM: The outage map has updated and the WC/TH section has apparently been fixed, leaving a section of Burien still out.

10:18 PM: City Light says a tree is to blame and those still without power might not get it back until 4:30 am or so.

Followup: ‘Lunches With Love’ volunteers feed hundreds http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/followup-lunches-with-love-volunteers-feed-hundreds/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/followup-lunches-with-love-volunteers-feed-hundreds/#comments Fri, 28 Nov 2014 02:06:50 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293438

On Thanksgiving Eve, volunteers of all ages gathered to make sure hundreds on West Seattle’s streets would have something to eat. The photos are courtesy of Lashanna Williams, who told us on Monday about her family-friends-and-other-helpers tradition, Lunches With Love.

Lashanna reports, “Hundreds of people were helped. Over 900 sandwiches and over 500 sack lunches. A streetside Thanksgiving dinner with 2 turkeys, salad, rolls, pie and drinks were hand delivered to people around Seattle.” And she thanks everyone who helped, “in whichever way you did – everything matters.”

West Seattle Thanksgiving 2014: Dinner for 200+ at The Hall http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-thanksgiving-2014-dinner-for-200-at-the-hall/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-thanksgiving-2014-dinner-for-200-at-the-hall/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 21:57:13 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293424

Cooking for a crowd today? So is that crew! 150 people had already arrived for the annual free Thanksgiving dinner at The Hall at Fauntleroy by the time we visited less than 1 hour after the doors opened at noon, and they expected to feed at least 200 before they’re done. Below, helping welcome everyone, volunteers included Wes and Ann, in the photo below with (center) David Haggerty, whose Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes Catering gives this gift each year:

Also contributing to the holiday dinner, kids from the Fauntleroy Children’s Center, which, like The Hall, is in the historic Fauntleroy Schoolhouse – they decorated placemats:

The spirit of decoration extended to executive chef Michael Chase, sporting a seasonally appropriate hat:

If you didn’t already have dinner plans, you can still get to The Hall at Fauntleroy by 3 pm; it’s at 9131 California SW. (If you don’t see this until later, the West Seattle Eagles are serving a free community feast, 2-5 pm – find details and lots more Thanksgiving-and-beyond info in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide.)

West Seattle Weather Watch: ‘Warm’ now, snow by Saturday? http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-warm-now-snow-by-saturday/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-weather-watch-warm-now-snow-by-saturday/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 20:42:45 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293420

12:42 PM: Thanks to John for the rainbow photo, looking toward the Fauntleroy ferry during one of today’s sunbreaks. This Thanksgiving Day is already making history – as of two hours ago, the National Weather Service tweeted, Sea-Tac Airport had already tied the record high for this date, 58 degrees. We don’t know if it went any higher, but right now, it’s a few degrees lower, and it’s going to keep sliding, with temps in the 30s expected by Friday night, along with a chance of snow – a chance that remains in the forecast up until about mid-morning Saturday. See the newest outlook here.

ADDED 3:06 PM: Thanks to Janna for sharing the new rainbow photo – taken at Alki!

ADDED 5:13 PM: Now there’s a special weather statement about the possible snow. So far, NWS says it’s more likely to the north on Friday night but might be more widespread Saturday morning.

West Seattle development: ‘Whole block fenced off’ for 3210 California SW project http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-development-whole-block-fenced-off-for-3210-california-sw-project/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-development-whole-block-fenced-off-for-3210-california-sw-project/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 04:47:21 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293363

As noted by one of several people who e-mailed us today to ask about that development site, you seldom “see a whole block fenced off.” It’s pre-demolition fencing, just put up this week at the redevelopment site known as 3210 California SW, which we’ve been covering for seven years – from the original rezone proposal for an entire block between Hanford and Hinds turned up in city files in 2007, to the subsequent development plan’s emergence in early 2013, to its final approval at Design Review. So here’s a refresher on what’s going in, once that block of buildings is torn down:

(Rendering courtesy NK Architects)
It’s a 4- and 5-story project with 134 apartments, 2 live-work units, 152 offstreet-parking spaces, and about 6,000 square feet of commercial space, being developed by Intracorp. It went before the Southwest Design Review Board five times before receiving a recommendation for final approval in April; by the fifth meeting, the developer lowered the north part of the complex to four stories, with its other two sections remaining at five.

The demolition permits were granted three months ago, but we don’t know how soon the demolition will start – once a fence goes up, the next thing to watch for is the arrival of no-parking signs, and then, of course, the heavy equipment. The contractor is Exxel Pacific, according to this page on the website of the project’s architecture firm, West Seattleite-owned NK.

SIDE NOTE: Wondering what happened to everything and everyone who were in the buildings? For starters, the city website says tenant-relocation licenses were granted for 23 units in all. Some of the buildings held businesses, like the Styling Studio, whose owner decided to join another salon, as he told us in June; the former Cayce and Gain Property Management, now Cayce Real Estate Services, moved to the Andover business park in North Delridge. Cometa Playschool is still in operation, at a different location.

Update: Another crash on Sylvan, no injuries reported http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-traffic-alert-another-crash-on-sylvan/ http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-traffic-alert-another-crash-on-sylvan/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 03:40:42 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=293378

7:40 PM: Suddenly Sylvan Way, which runs through High Point between Upper Morgan and Delridge, is a hot spot for crashes. Police and fire are currently at the scene of another one near Sylvan Way/Sylvan Heights (map). No details yet, but it’s affecting traffic, with at least one lane blocked.

8:24 PM: The crash involved just one vehicle; it ran into a fence and took out a tree. Police told us at the scene that no one was hurt. This was very close to the spot where a driver hit a tree two nights ago.
