Comment on West Seattle development: New Junction apartment-building proposal, 60 units at 4528 44th SW by WS Since 66 http://westseattleblog.com/2014/11/west-seattle-development-new-junction-apartment-building-proposal-60-units-at-4528-44th-sw/#comment-1742686 WS Since 66 Fri, 28 Nov 2014 21:17:21 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=292805#comment-1742686 Hey let's just put up a check point at the WS Bridge and only let people with proof that they live in WS? Better yet why not let in just the people who have lived here for say 25 years? That way the "unwanted" people won't bother us because we were here first. Doh! I forgot about the Duwamish and other tribes. Well the idea is still a good one for some people, isn't it?

Tomorrow is a pretty high tide, and today's rain may easily add a foot or more to the predicted high tide. But what is really important for beach residents is that the hourly prediction shows strong steady wind from the north around tomorrow's high tide. If you face north, you might consider sand bagging today. Many fall storms with tidal sloshing have winds from the SW, which effects residents facing west. Anon:

Glad I didn't go back to get a photo. It is ugly out there everywhere. A good day for everyone to make sure the drains on and near their property are not plugged.
