Stormy morning – just had some thunder this past half-hour, and then a bit of sunshine. The forecast says it’ll be showery on and off all day, with more thunderstorms possible “early in the afternoon.” Here’s what else is happening:
TASTE OF WEST SEATTLE, FINAL DAY: Today/tonight, it’s your last chance to get special menu items at food/drink establishments around West Seattle and know that you’re doing something good – besides supporting local businesses, you’re supporting the West Seattle Food Bank‘s work to fight hunger and homelessness. You have dozens of options – see the list of participants (and menu items) here! (WSB is a community co-sponsor of the Taste of West Seattle.)
GOVERNOR’S BRIEFING: 2:30 pm, the governor plans a briefing/media Q&A “to discuss the state’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic and new protocols for safe airline travel in Washington state.” It’ll be livestreamed – and available for playback later – here.
DEMONSTRATION: 4-6 pm, Scott‘s twice-weekly sign-waving demonstration in support of Black lives is planned at 16th/Holden, “signs available” if you don’t have your own.
