    WARNING!!!! It will be in the 20’s tonight. Anything that melts will be worse than snow:ICE. Be VERY careful overnight and tomorrow morning.

  • It’s not snowplows this time… it’s tech December 30, 2021 (9:28 am)

    Has Mayor-elect Harrell named the new IT director for the City?   Let’s hope we get a real experienced Tech leader this time that knows how to keep crucial systems running in disasters.   The recent E911 outage and the GIS views are worrisome. This is just snow – what happens in an earthquake?   Folks notice when the snow plows aren’t running…. I’d like to know that our IT systems will work as well.

    Metropolitan Market had a sign indicating an early 8pm closing. Website shows the same.Admiral Safeway’s upper deck parking and access ramp are very icy.  Ground level parking looked ok.

    Here at Nino Cantu for my 9:50 COVID swab appointment — along with lots of other people and no staff. Wish UW had alerted us that the site was not opening til 10:30 … tg for the WS blog!

    No mail for days on 35th. Has USPS announced anything about making up for this last string of days with no delivery of mail?

  • CAM December 30, 2021 (3:58 pm)

    I went to the post office (Westwood) today to try to get some packages. Turns out that they’ve had about 50% call outs all week according to the person I was speaking to. They said that they do not have staff to sort the mail. It sounds like it is usually the carriers that sort the mail for their routes and if the carrier calls in then the mail doesn’t get sorted and thus can’t get delivered. Going there to pick up the mail won’t do any good because it isn’t sorted and they won’t be able to locate it. She said that it should be sorted out and people should start getting things again by Monday. There were some people being very yelly while I was there. The people who showed up to work probably don’t need that.

    Anyone else not getting their US mail this week? I’m in 98146 and haven’t had a single thing in my mailbox this week.

    • Sunrise Heights December 30, 2021 (7:06 pm)

      We’ve not had any mail deliveries missed. Seems like it depends on who has your route. Earlier deliveries than normal for us even. 

    • Jamie December 30, 2021 (7:14 pm)

      I live in 98116 and our mail was delivered yesterday and today. I spoke with our carrier (who is one of the kindest people I know) and he confirmed that many USPS employees have been unable to come into work due to either the weather or COVID. They are doing their best!

    • WSlite December 31, 2021 (2:58 am)

      I haven’t been receiving my usual USPS mail this week either. You are not alone. Understandable though considering the snow conditions around here and surrounding cities where mail persons may live too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
