    There’s a sailboat race that can be seen from Alki right now (noon) fun to see everyone out on the water!

      Thanks, just wrote a separate story on that, I usually check the Coast Guard Local Notice to Mariners for advance word of these things but didn’t catch this one.

    FYI, I’m not sure if it’s still closed, but they had both ways going up the Highland hill closed to clear the tree around 11 am.  There’s also some sort of utility work going on westbound Roxbury at Henderson, closing one lane, which is exceptionally poorly planned to maximize the pain of everyone trying to get back to the peninsula.

      Still closed as of about 5pm today when we returned from SoDo.

    Thanks for the great picture  Stewart L.!The warmer air over cooler water gave a good “lens effect”!  At least I think that is what’s happening there. Looks like the shore-line homes are mansions! It would be fun to see a photo of the same place on a different weather day!

Sorry, comment time is over.
