8:19 PM: We’re starting to get some Sunday info. We’re continuing to update our local lists, linked above, but will also note major announcements like this – Shalimar Gonzales, executive director of the West Seattle/Fauntleroy YMCA (WSB sponsor), says, “Our WS location will be open 10 am-3 pm on Sunday. Our pool will close at 2:30. Fauntleroy will remain closed.” … Grocery report: Phoebe e-mailed to say West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) is well-stocked now … In earlier coverage, we reported on a truck getting stuck on the SW Edmunds hill in The Junction. Jake reports it’s bad tonight too and wanted to warn you: “Edmunds east of 42nd is an ice sheet. Two collisions … cars going downhill and locking up, unable to stop.”
9:27 PM: Trouble with the 1st Avenue South Bridge – the State Patrol says NB 509 will be “closed for a couple hours” as a result.
10:39 PM: And it was fixed in less than an hour. So let’s look at a couple pretty photos that came in tonight – from Micah Summers, the Seattle Chinese Garden on Puget Ridge:
And this High Point scene is from Breton:
And just in – though the Farmers’ Market is still on so far as we know, the city’s scheduled WSFM booth to take opinions about the future 48th/Charlestown park has been POSTPONED to a future date. (You can still take the online survey linked in our recent story.)
