Unplugged, the summer edition

Some pockets of power trouble here on the south end of West Seattle in the past 18 hours or so, including here at WSB HQ (so says the early-rising team member, who noted it was out at least as far as 35th and Trenton, for at least an hour until about 6 am). Another outage happened in neighborhoods near Morgan Junction last night; one reader tells us it was out at her house for at least 5 hours. No word yet on what’s going on here (the City Light Outage Hotline only makes mention of something going on right now in Sodo) but it might have something to do with the Morgan substation just north of Thriftway, where several City Light crews blocked off that last stub of Morgan for a while last night (photo below), though our ERTM says they weren’t there this am.

    My power, in the Morgan Junction area, went out around 4:40 this morning.

    I was half asleep, and the radio and fan in my bedroom popped off, kinda jolting me awake. It was about 20 minutes before I planned to get up anyway, so I stayed up, so that I would not oversleep, and be late for work.

    Thankfully, after last December’s power outage(s), I bought a Ray-O-Vac battery operated fluorescent lantern (looks like a Coleman kerosene lantern) so I had light to shower by.

    Power came back on around 5:30.

    It’s time we put the power lines underground!

Sorry, comment time is over.
