6:03 AM Good morning! Be careful of slippery slush, after a night of heavy rain.


“Rain at times,” breezy forecast for today, and temperatures closer to seasonal normal.


Seattle Public Schools aren’t reopening until tomorrow; Highline Public Schools are starting two hours late.


Metro expected to be back on its regular weekday schedule after ending Emergency Snow Network reductions Sunday. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of trip cancellations.

Ferries and Water Taxi: WSF continues a two-boat schedule on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run. Check here for alerts/updates. The Water Taxi is on its regular schedule.


650th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Many area traffic cams were down as of early this morning – we’ll keep checking to see if that’s remedied – here are the two we have right now:

The 1st Avenue South Bridge (map):

South Park Bridge:

Are movable bridges opening for vessels? The @SDOTBridges Twitter feed can tell you; 1st Ave. S. Bridge openings are also tweeted on @wsdot_traffic.

See all local traffic cams (when they’re working) here; locally relevant cameras are also on this WSB page.

    WSB. Couple of questions for you to ask. 1st for SDOT. With the cold and snow of last week how did the bridge sensors do. And, if good do they now consider the bridge “stable”?? 2nd for the contractor. Did the cement truck drivers’ strike cause any delay?

    Watch out for two potholes on Sylvan on the way to Home Depot.  Approximately before the curve ( I think) and before the road splits into two lanes. Will put in a pothole repair request.   Note to self: report the red light the High Point library.  It stays red too long!

      Can confirm, giant potholes are all over the place post snow and road clearing / de icing. Be careful out there!

      Agree on the light at 35th & Raymond. I think it stays red longer because it anticipates most are turning right, but it waits way too long. Going east-bound is even worse, I’ve sat and watched the pedestrian signal go to red and then back to green all while I’m waiting.

    If school is out why are school buses running? Have now watched two get stuck and have to inch out of a traffic circle in High Point (road is bare and wet at this point). 

    • WSB January 3, 2022 (9:16 am)

      Seattle Public Schools is out but they aren’t the only ones who run school buses.

    • East Coast Cynic January 3, 2022 (12:13 pm)

      How, pray tell, are the school buses getting stuck if the road is bare and wet?

    • S Warren January 3, 2022 (7:17 pm)

      Maybe Black ice…?

    Flivver – I presume you meant Concrete Truck drivers.  The bridge strengthening involves reinforcement steel cables and to my knowledge any Concrete work would be when the Contractor is wrapping things up that I hope is ahead of the schedule, early May would be nice so WS residents can get to graduations et al easier.

  • Flivver January 3, 2022 (12:45 pm)

    WSB. Any word on what’s up with the offline camera’s? MJ, mea culpa….. concrete is correct. 

  • momosmom January 3, 2022 (1:22 pm)

    MJ, Cement truck/concrete truck I think we all knew what Flivver meant.

Sorry, comment time is over.
