    Any word on wait times (for appointments) at the West Seattle Covid testing center? Want to know how many layers to wear. :) 

    • Vanessa Bechtle December 29, 2021 (12:06 pm)

      I heard testing sites were closed,due to weather.

      • WSB December 29, 2021 (12:16 pm)

        The city testing site in West Seattle was opening late again today, 10:30 am, but definitely open (and crowded according to a passerby). The Curative site was closed yesterday but the website shows it as open today.

    • Mary Kilmartin December 29, 2021 (7:30 pm)

      Never any wait at testing site by the boat launch at Alki.

    Just curious…. kind of worried….. am I the only one not getting any mail delivered in West Seattle?  (Fauntleroy area)  I understand there is some snow on the ground, can I go to the post office to request my mail?  I have a couple important pieces of mail past due otherwise I would be content waiting for the snow to melt.   

    • Vanessa Bechtle December 29, 2021 (12:07 pm)

      On 42 ave s.w.,we haven’t see mail since Friday.

    • waikikigirl December 29, 2021 (12:26 pm)

      We live in the Shorewood area and got mail on Monday and then that was it none since, but that’s OK with us…better safe than sorry. UPS though has delivered and also picked up from us everyday those peeps in Brown are the best!No garbage PU yesterday and not expected for the rest of this week but we’re good with that too.

    • Jeepney December 29, 2021 (12:28 pm)

      No mail for me since Thursday 12/23, I am at 35th and Barton.

    • Fairmount Park December 29, 2021 (5:44 pm)

      I’m on 42nd as well but I received a bunch of mail today—likely they missed deliveries.  Oddly enough though, they didn’t take any of our outgoing mail.

    • Marina December 29, 2021 (10:15 pm)

      None of us at the Admiral Theater have gotten our checks yet, and that’s a pretty wide swath of West Seattle. One of us even lives by the U District. I don’t think there’s a lot of mail being delivered, though I’ve heard that if your post office is open (specifically where they sort *your* mail), you can go in and request it. 

  • Haverton8897 December 29, 2021 (11:51 am)

    Anyone have any luck with mail delivery in last few days?

    • Vanessa Bechtle December 29, 2021 (12:08 pm)


    • Sue H December 29, 2021 (3:10 pm)

      I’m in Gatewood and other than Christmas weekend we’ve been getting mail as usual.

  • kim December 29, 2021 (12:00 pm)

    No on Monday, yes on Tuesday. Alki flats.

    • EricL December 29, 2021 (12:48 pm)

      Same for me on alki.

  • Blbl December 29, 2021 (12:06 pm)

    No problem with mail here in Admiral. Ours has been showing up daily, very early.

  • Lincoln Park North December 29, 2021 (12:09 pm)

    No mail the last 5-6 days. This includes before the snow and before Christmas.   Would love to know what’s up.  Yes, our walkway is shoveled. Not on a hill.  Covid issues?

  • Lola December 29, 2021 (12:15 pm)

    Mayev,  we have not had mail delivery this is going on the 3rd day for us on 50th & Alaska St.  We are at the bottom before the hill starts.  We have spotty mail as it is.  A month ago we got mail three times from 3 different mail people.  Lol.

  • valvashon December 29, 2021 (12:33 pm)

    If you have taken a COVID test and get a phone call wanting to e-mail you your results DO NOT give them any info. It’s from a spoofed number and not legitimate.I feel like a dope for falling for it but they were confused about the correct lettering for my e-mail so I hope that foiled them.

  • Crystal December 29, 2021 (1:07 pm)

    East of Westwood village got mail today & just before Christmas

  • Patricia Granquist Chastain December 29, 2021 (2:06 pm)

    Have any idea when we’ll get mail?  We haven’t had any delivery since last Thursday!  We neighbors (on this block & next one) have been talking – they’ve been skipping our blocks on Saturdays for weeks now & now- 5400-5600 blocks …

  • Patricia G December 29, 2021 (2:12 pm)

    Forgot – Please don’t publish my full name on my email I just sent – Thank you …

    • momosmom December 29, 2021 (8:24 pm)

      Too late it got posted 

  • Pessoa December 29, 2021 (2:18 pm)

    It’s cold out but balmy compared to the James Webb Space Telescope which has begun deploying it’s sunshield as it continues out to its insertion orbit around L2.  Temperature on the JWST facing away from the sun?   -244 F.  Now that’s cold!

  • robert vogt December 29, 2021 (2:27 pm)

    Any tips on sledding hills in WS?

    • Jay December 29, 2021 (2:55 pm)

      Golf course is the best sledding in west sea!

  • WSobserver December 29, 2021 (2:56 pm)

    Lower Gatewood – no mail since last Friday Dec. 24.

  • TheseTrees December 29, 2021 (3:30 pm)

    Hey neighbors does anyone know if any buses are running up or down on Alki? My one bus away app has said the buss is 109 minutes away for 3 days now. Thanks! 

  • NW December 29, 2021 (6:42 pm)

    Go to this page on King County Metro Bus Schedules website and you will see there is no route 50 

  • 1994 December 29, 2021 (8:44 pm)

    For those who need to visit a Chase Bank in person, be aware they have been closing early  at 3:00 at the Westwood Village location. Don’t know about the other locations.

Sorry, comment time is over.
