WEST SEATTLE MONDAY: Presidents Day and other info to start the week

(Saturday photo by Jay Gewin)

It’s Presidents Day and we’re watching a foot of snow melt away. Here’s more hopefully helpful info, beyond the transportation info noted earlier:

ICYMI – NO TRASH/RECYCLING PICKUP: As we reported just before 8 am, no pickup today, and the city confirms the rest of the week will slide a day too (so if you have Tuesday pickup, it’ll be Wednesday, etc., assuming they can indeed make Monday collections tomorrow).

NO SCHOOL: Besides the holiday, this is midwinter-break week for Seattle Public Schools.

NO LIBRARIES: Curbside service is closed for the holiday.

NO MAIL: It’s a USPS holiday. (Added: Some readers note in comments that they ARE seeing mail delivery today, though.)

NO BANKS: It’s a Federal Reserve holiday.

(added) PARKS & OTHER CITY NOTES: West Seattle Golf Course is open for snow play again today (but not for golf). That and other city department post-storm notes are here.

WEATHER: Rainy and warmer – back into the 40s.

STATE OF THE CITY: Mayor Durkan gives her last annual address at 5:05 pm, streamed on Seattle Channel.

We’ll add to this list throughout the day if and when other announcements come in. Any info to share? westseattleblog@gmail.com – thank you!

    It’s not a USPS holiday for one driver stuck on my street, spinning his wheels even with chains!

    We just got mail delivered. Maybe since no Saturday delivery they decided to deliver on Monday.

      That’s why I always provide the link as attribution . the USPS itself says today is a postal holiday. I suppose everything these days is YMMV …

        USPS Priority Mail Express delivers 365 days/year.

          Will amend the description for future USPS holidays!

          USPS always meets their deadlines.  If it’s 2 to 3 day priority and the 3rd day is on a Sunday/Holiday with no delivery yet, it will be delivered that day.

            lol – no way that is even close to true. i sell some things on ebay sometimes and had several priority packages take a week + and also have the tracking info “freeze” for days, no updates. this was around the election time but still pretty frustrating. when i’d call my local PO they’d always blame it on issues at the Kent sorting facility. i don’t doubt they try, but they most definitely do not always meet their deadlines.

    We no longer get mail every day.  It seems like they wait till we get an accumulation then they deliver it.  Like Mon, Wed, Sat.  Seems to be the norm for us now.  I think with less mail it is probably a good thing.  Most of the time it is junk mail anyway. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
