West Seattle snow/ice: Thursday-Friday overnight edition

(Stacy‘s snow sculpture on Pigeon Point, photographed by Mark)
11:04 PM: All the weather info we’ve heard/seen so far suggests what you see out your window now will still be there in the morning. How long till it melts? Estimates vary. Meantime, most students are off again tomorrow (the closure list is here) and Metro plans to at least start the day on snow routes. Others have it rougher than us – a quarter-million people without power elsewhere in Western Washington, but only a handful in West Seattle, from two tiny outages in Genesee and Westwood.

11:21 PM UPDATE: A big addition to the closure list for Friday – South Seattle Community College. We will collect business/organization/facility closures again for one more day, so please let us know about any of those, too.

    South CC is finally getting smart and notifying us the night before! Been a drag waking up early on a day off!

    Temperature is Movin’ On Up! Few hours ago, 29. Now it’s 32, at 4 in the morning.
    Rush hour will be, well, slippery.

    i see the sheets of ice on north-facing windows is melted without heat being turned on it. So I am thinking there is hope!

    I am relieved to wake up to power – those flickering lights were intense – my memories of ’96 storm coming to mind. When so many have
    no power or heat right now, we are really very lucky by comparison.

    OTH, I heard a forecast predicting 7-10 inches of precip in the next two days ( straight-up
    raindrop type, they say)! It’d be nice if they are wrong?

    It looks the same outside my door this morning as it did when I went to sleep. Lots of snow and ice in the branches. I don’t see significant signs of melting. It will take awhile to melt won’t it? Can I stay home again?

      It’ll take a while, but it’s happening. The icicles that have been hanging from the eaves of our house, visible through the front window, since yesterday, are dripping and down to ice needles now. P.S. Morning report is under way – https://westseattleblog.com/?p=98555
