WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Southwest Pool opening late because of power trouble

12:29 PM: Southwest Pool would usually be open by now for its first lap swim of the day, but Seattle Parks says it’s opening late today “due to power outages this past weekend … Crews are working to get the boilers back online.” The weekend’s major power outage on Sunday didn’t stretch that far west, so we’re checking with Parks for more information.

2:04 PM: Parks spokesperson Rachel Schulkin didn’t have outage-specific info but tells WSB, “The power outage had an impact on the pool’s boilers and the pool and shower temperatures are reducing. Our HVAC crews are coming out to get it fixed and hope to have it open later today or tomorrow, but we won’t know exactly until the HVAC crew gives us a time estimate.”

4:19 PM: The pool is open again, but may be a few degrees cooler than usual.

    11.55′ Tides at Alki plus high winds made for quite a bit of splash/spray this afternoon. Not quite King Tides, but the wind turned things into a show.

    This isn’t exactly “Weather” news, but close enough.

Sorry, comment time is over.
