    Love the library! Such troopers..

  • leanna January 18, 2012 (8:28 am)

    Not really West Seattle but Woodland Park Zoo officially closed today.

  • Alice January 18, 2012 (9:06 am)

    I just happened to get e-mails about these two:

    Pacific Science Center – Exhibits closed, IMAX theaters open 12pm-9pm
    Children’s Museum – open 10-3

  • Alice January 18, 2012 (9:08 am)

    Just if you feel like going to Seattle Center.

  • Amy January 18, 2012 (9:53 am)

    Does anyone know about the community centers for children’s classes today/tonight?

  • Lorelee January 18, 2012 (10:12 am)

    I’d assume everything is closed! But I’d love to hear if there’s restaurants open for lunch. I think we’ll be ready for a walk in the snow for some

    • WSB January 18, 2012 (10:38 am)

      Lorelee – no, everything is NOT closed! We have a separate list of closures that have been either brought to our attention or turned up on the many Facebook or Twitter accounts we monitor, but we have seen more than a few places announce “Hey, we’re here!” For example – West 5’s Dave Montoure made a point of e-mailing us to say they expected to open at 11 as usual. The closures we know of so far (and changes) are here: https://westseattleblog.com/?p=98198 – TR

      • WSB January 18, 2012 (10:59 am)

        And .. we received e-mail from Zippy’s Giant Burgers that they are open, though might close a little early tonight depending on how things go. – TR

  • seattlecris January 18, 2012 (10:59 am)

    Think there will be mail delivery today?

  • mrs t January 18, 2012 (11:11 am)

    Community Centers are open, but all programs and classes are cancelled. I would call before u go just to make sure there is staff that made it to work.

  • cass January 18, 2012 (11:17 am)

    yes–love to know if there will be mail delivery today–anyone know?

  • A January 18, 2012 (11:26 am)

    Cris and cass- yes there will be mail delivery today. I’m a postman and luckily today is my scheduled day off but I know my fellow carriers are out there busting their butts to get you your mail. Be patient though because with my previous experience with snow storms, alot of us are unable to make it to work so we are extremely short staffed during these times. If you live on a hill my guess is you wont get your mail as it is too dangerous for us to drive and/or walk up and down hills in this stuff. If you do not get your mail, my apologies but know that we are trying as hard as we can to get it to you. If you see your mailman say hi and thank him or her because these are really stressful times for us out there in the snow.

  • kumalavula January 18, 2012 (11:41 am)

    FedEx truck just climbed the 22nd ave sw/Oregon hill on the western edge of pigeon point so deliveries (mail, apparently, included per comment above) are happening! thanks to all those people who did go to work today in jobs that provide the rest of us services we normally take for granted.

  • Cami January 18, 2012 (11:44 am)

    Still a fine snowy sideways mist on Alki! Is it still snowing all over West Seattle?

    • WSB January 18, 2012 (11:56 am)

      It’s actually snowing harder up here than it has been for most of the morning – TR

  • bsmomma January 18, 2012 (11:51 am)

    Looks like the snow is coming down harder now in North Admiral. :)

  • Cami January 18, 2012 (12:05 pm)

    It’s really picked up at Alki, too!

  • seattlecris January 18, 2012 (12:05 pm)

    Thank you A…the hill exception makes sense. Gravity rules no matter what is on the tires.

  • A January 18, 2012 (12:21 pm)

    No prob cris. Management tells us to avoid hills cuz they don’t want to pay for an injured worker who slipped on a hill. In my experience, going up and down stairs is even more dangerous than the hills in this stuff. Anyways, hope you get your mail!

  • peggie January 18, 2012 (12:32 pm)

    We got our paper and mail! Would have totally understood if neither had been delivered. A Hugh thank you to all who are out there doing this kind of work. Takes a very hearty soul to do this. Thank you.

  • peggie January 18, 2012 (12:35 pm)

    Still snowing here too near Taco Time. And blowing.

  • cass January 18, 2012 (12:40 pm)

    Thanks Postman A!

  • seattlecris January 18, 2012 (12:52 pm)

    wondering if Ida is a Hill between 35th and California….guess I’ll find out!

  • A January 18, 2012 (1:08 pm)

    I would be fine delivering to Ida street but I’m young and strong :) just depends on who your carrier is and if they feel like they can safely navigate that hill.

  • mrs t January 18, 2012 (1:38 pm)

    Just heard they are closing all community centers now.

  • Mary January 18, 2012 (1:40 pm)

    Our mail came *early* today–thanks Mail-guy!

    Is Skylark Cafe, Chelan Cafe or Luna Park cafe open? Thinking we need to get out of the house and can walk to those…

    • WSB January 19, 2012 (4:01 pm)

      Skylark and Luna Park ARE as of last report, both have posted on our FB page. Chelan, I don’t know, try calling – here’s their page in our Restaurant Guide :) https://westseattleblog.com/chelan-cafe

  • Deb January 19, 2012 (4:44 pm)

    I have to say my Seattle Times carrier is a trooper and never misses delivery, even on mornings like this. I live on Fauntleroy and Dawson and met him at my porch this morning at 5:30 giving him kudos for a fantastic job!

  • Roger January 19, 2012 (5:05 pm)

    Not complaining just curious if others in Gatewood are not getting Seattle Times either? (Last 3 days)

Sorry, comment time is over.
