Next time will be better, the mayor promises

West Seattle’s Most Famous Politician just promised (as detailed in a city press release here) that if anything like last December’s storm happens again this year, we won’t all be left in the dark for so long, literally OR figuratively. Meantime, the storm-related repairs that have been 10 months in the making are finally under way at the Thistle/Northrop sinkhole (full details here) — the heavy equipment arrived a couple hours ago:

    Why not take them directly to the Walking on Logs/Welcome to West Seattle site and let them eat all the way to 35th.

    So the “Mayor” says that response and restoral will be much quicker if we have another storm like last Dec.

    RIGHT!!! I’ll believe it when I see it! I STILL have yet to see the restoral of the “right-of-way” for utility poles that are between houses in what once were alleys. This is why the people just west of Westwood Village were powerless for so long last Dec.

    Power crews had just repaired the lines they could get to and turned power on, just to watch a tree limb short out the lines in the lost “right-of-way.” It caused another 24+ hours of no power. When I talked to the repair crew they told me if they could get to the power poles, power would be up in 2 hours, but because of the loss of the alley, it would be at least another day.

    The alleys have been taken over by homeowners and they have let the trees over grow the powerlines and City Light can’t easily get to them for clearing or repair.

    All I can say is I hope we only have 13 months left of this clown in the mayor’s office. All he care about is raising taxes, high density housing, raising taxes, pushing the tunnel, raising taxes, paying $10 million for 2 studies on the viaduct instead of hiring more police officers and, did I mention raising taxes!!

    oh, you mean this time he’ll actually acknowledge that people in the city were without power for an entire week!?!
