West Seattle Weather Watch: Night’s here, wind’s STILL here

Thanks to Bob Bollen for that sea-spray shot from south of Alki Point (your photos are welcome too! – editor@westseattleblog.com). No reports of major problems in the area so far, but here are some links to watch:

Latest forecast (wind advisory’s in effect till midnight)
National Weather Service “storm reports” (high wind gusts, etc.)
City Light power-outage list
WSDOT trouble spots via Twitter
Washington State Ferries “service bulletins”
King County road alerts
Live 911 log for Seattle fire/medic calls

Got a link to add? We’d love to hear about it. P.S. We checked with Our Lady of Guadalupe a bit earlier and tonight’s 7 pm tree lighting is still on, at last report. ADDED 9:22 PM: A bit of slushy snow earlier, as mentioned in comments. And we got e-mail about a snowplow/sand truck stationed on the south California SW hill (near Ida; here’s a map) just before 8 pm. Will check later if it’s still there. 10:06 PM UPDATE: Newest “forecast discussion” is out. Looks like things aren’t too crazy-cold until tomorrow night, though snow showers are still a threat during the day.

    Around 35th and Roxbury – we are, once again, out of gas due to Pilchuck construction. Word is, there was an emergency repair, but that was around 430pm. As the temperatures drop outside, it is not getting any warmer inside…
