    A friend went to get a covid test on Thistle and the employees weren’t there at 9 a.m. to start testing. They got a later update that they are trying to open the testing site by 10:30 a.m. (Sounds like they are open for the drive-in site in SoDo, long line though.)

    Various Starbucks closed–I happened past Admiral, Morgan Junction, and Alaska Junction-all closed. 

  • Kim Renee Schwarzkopf December 27, 2021 (10:22 am)

    No one at the Don Armeni testing site either :( 

  • SSF December 27, 2021 (10:30 am)

    The Starbucks by Taco Time and in the Junction are both closed. Plus, there is no one at either Starbucks in Safeway or QFC in the Junction. 

    • Raymond December 27, 2021 (10:54 am)

      Oh no, what will we do without our chain! Kidding but lol. Just walk to Lula’s or something better!

    • momosmom December 27, 2021 (2:59 pm)

      Yea why so many Starbucks closed? I’ve been trying to get my last 2 bonus stars to get 50 for the last 2 days and no stores open!!!

        Because they’re not going to risk death. They are paid close to nothing, they probably drive a beater with bald tires, and are one unforeseen expense away from living on the street. They may have to come from somewhere with more snow or live on an unplowed street. I know it’s frustrating though, and the snow is a total pain in the arse. I’d honestly love to buy you a fancy drink to make up for losing a discount after this is over, if it means employees don’t have to put themselves and others in danger.Sincerely,The driver of a beater car with bald tires who is one unforeseen expense away from living on the street

    FYI – RealFine Coffee says on Instagram both West Seattle locations are open til 3pm. 35th Ave by Kenyon Hall Fauntleroy Ave by Rudy’s (older loc, not Bishops)

  • ttt December 27, 2021 (10:48 am)

    school of rock lessons are online this week.

  • NW Mama December 27, 2021 (11:30 am)

    HighPoint and SW library locations are open, but the West Seattle  (admiral) branch is closed per the spl.org website

    • WSB December 27, 2021 (11:39 am)

      Delridge too, we have those listed. Thank you!

  • WS Res December 27, 2021 (11:39 am)

    Can confirm Starbuck’s everywhere, and McDonald’s all seem to be closed.  But Lula’s Coffee in the Junction is open, and has drive-thru service, and breakfast sandwiches and pastries!

  • Flivver December 27, 2021 (11:46 am)

    Is there mail delivery today? I’m guessing no. 

    • WSB December 27, 2021 (12:30 pm)

      Yes, there is mail delivery. Ours just arrived. Don’t you recall the old slogan about inclement weather not stopping the mail?

      • SunDevil December 27, 2021 (4:04 pm)

        The person who came up with that slogan never came to my neighborhood because the last two snow “events”, my mail was not delivered. Just because it is a slogan doesn’t make it so.

        • WSB December 27, 2021 (4:20 pm)

          Sorry to hear that. Conditions certainly will lead to some outages, as with other services. Just looked up the history of the motto, meantime, and it seems to be unofficial:
          (Re: the ‘gloom of night’ part, on Christmas Eve, our mail was delivered at 7:35 pm.)

  • HS December 27, 2021 (12:25 pm)

    Just spoke with LA Fitness. They’re closing at 5pm today due to staffing shortages.

  • rob December 27, 2021 (12:57 pm)

     i just wish people would clear the roof of there cars of snow. It seems as though they think its cool to show all the snow we had at our house. The truth is this is extremly unsafe for other drivers on the road. When the snow flies off an into the wind shield of the car behind you , this can cause that car to crash causing injury an maybe death.  Not so cool.

  • MercyMoi December 27, 2021 (1:16 pm)

    Is it likely most places will be shut all week? The temps will not get above freezing until at least Thursday – when it’s supposed to snow more. I have appts scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday and no one is picking up their phones today. Just wondering if we think this is a one day thing or a string of days thing re: closures.

    • Valerie December 27, 2021 (4:53 pm)

      It’s looking like it really depends on the business… everything was closed yesterday but more are open today. Checking a business’s social media for updates can usually be helpful. 

  • AlkiGirl December 27, 2021 (1:58 pm)

    Does anyone know if Zeeks is open? Called by got a voicemail message saying some locations are closed by didn’t specify is WS was open. Thanks!

    • Valerie December 27, 2021 (4:44 pm)

      Zeeks is open! So is The Bridge, Beveridge Place, Whiskey West. 

  • Don December 27, 2021 (4:18 pm)

    Kudos to the workers at the neighborhood house vax clinic for showing up on 26th !!   With it being cold the snow was fine in the flatter roads.   I have never driven the speed limit until yesterday — now I know the 25 is for snow days and they just leave them up all year for simplicity’s sake.   

    • SunDevil December 27, 2021 (5:55 pm)

      Kudos to any workers showing up anywhere. Seems like any Starbucks we have gone to recently have cut hours or are just shut down entirely (looking at you White Center Starbucks). These two weeks are going to be a big hit to all businesses large and small. Hope everyone is going to be ready to actually work after their extended vacation. 

  • Flivver December 27, 2021 (4:24 pm)

    WSB. Mailman never showed here on Alki. I was looking for- neighbors were too.

  • trickycoolj December 27, 2021 (5:15 pm)

    Any leads on ice melt? Turns out ours disintegrated to just a little bit of mystery blue liquid in the jug that we had stored in the garage. Whoops. Shoveled none the less, this cold powder snow is thankfully very light weight.  

    • grocery shopper December 27, 2021 (5:32 pm)

      Admiral Safeway had some ice melt yesterday.

Sorry, comment time is over.
