7 AM: Good morning. The rain continues, and the National Weather Service says the first round of wind is on the way, with a High Wind Warning from 6 pm tonight to 7 am Friday.

If you are heading TOWARD West Seattle right now or soon, be forewarned that a crash has closed the southbound Battery Street Tunnel.

7:40 AM: That crash has cleared. Nothing else reported on nearby routes except general slowness. Meantime, forecasters say that while the wind warning starts at 6 pm in our area, the worst isn’t expected until late tonight. We will be on storm watch through the night and into early Friday. (Another reminder that school’s out tomorrow – long-scheduled day of no classes for Seattle Public Schools.)

7:48 AM: Texter warns of especially slow traffic on Admiral Way getting to the bridge.

7:55 AM: Could be related to that:

8:11 AM: Texter (reach us at 206-293-6302 any time) says the light on Cloverdale at Highway 509 is out, and that’s causing some backup on the 1st-to-Olson-to-Roxbury hill.

8:28 AM: Iggy reports in comments that the Route 22 bus has lost a tire, south of Morgan Junction, and is awaiting Metro maintenance. Until and unless a replacement has been brought in, could mean delays for people waiting to ride elsewhere on the route.

    Just noticed the 22 Bus with flashers on parked in front of our driveway south of Morgan Junction.  Talked to the driver.  He lost a tire !!  waiting for Metro maintenance to come out.  There is only one 22 bus that circuits all morning, so if anyone is planning on venturing out on it this morning, it will be delayed.

      Thanks, Iggy!

Sorry, comment time is over.
