WEST SEATTLE SUNDAY: What’s happening post-holiday

(Texted photo – seen at Lincoln Park)

Fairly quiet today as the holiday season ends and the snow moves toward melting – but we have a few notes for today in West Seattle:

CHURCHES: We continue updating the weekly list of West Seattle online church services (with most churches also offering in-person attendance) – see it here.

(5444 Delridge Way SW)

    Can anyone recommend the best streets to travel around the WS Farmers Market? Are the streets bare and dry around the Junction? I need to drive from Gatewood-SW Holden to Admiral today.

      We went to The Junction yesterday and 44th was navigable, at least as far north as Oregon, where you can turn back to California.

      35th N to Avalon to Admiral works well.

    The Alaska hill from the Junction west is clear and well salted. You can easily make it up/down it in 2WD car.  Watch out for peds, though, they are using the street because the sidewalks are a mess.

    Completely off topic but have people received mail this past week? We did not receive any mail all week and neither did my neighbors. I know the weather and sidewalks were crap but it seems odd the post office did not deliver at all. 

    • WSB January 2, 2022 (1:08 pm)

      That topic has come up in several threads. The USPS has not made any official statements (aside from “keep your walkways clear so carriers can be safe”), but some people have reported missed deliveries.

      No mail since a week ago yesterday. I haven’t even seen a USPS vehicle on Delridge the few times I have been out. No newspaper, either. Hopeful for both tomorrow.

    FYI –   Vaccine clinic is not welcoming walk-ins

    • WSB January 2, 2022 (4:12 pm)

      That would be a change from the announcements and reminders that we received for publication.

        I can confirm they’re not taking walk-ins, not at the moment anyway. I got there at 3 and waited in the walk-in line outside for 20 minutes, while those with appointments were ushered in. Then we were told it would be 4:45 before they could start taking walk-ins so everyone left. It was also very icy on the street out front and an older man slipped and fell. Poorly run and best avoided.

          Yes, daughter just returned from vaccine clinic, unboosted, as there were 56 people on the wait list.  Also, her car went careening in front of school on a completely iced-over street.

        Can confirm they were not taking walk ins. I didn’t even see a link to register for an appointment and assumed walk up was okay meant they’d have shots for everyone, but by the time I got there at 3:35, there was 40+ people on the wait list, and the woman said “there’s no way you will get called, but leave your number in case.” If the link to sign up was on the QR code on the flyer that was published, that’s pretty sucky for people who don’t have two phones around to scan the QR code.Pretty disappointing considering the streets Google took me on to get there were awful. The street we parked on in front of the school was completely iced over causing us to almost fall down and slide, and my kids haven’t gotten a chance to get their second shot because the snow canceled all the other clinics that were running this past week. I wish King County were living up to its promise to make it incredibly easy to get kids vaccinated, as it’s been almost impossible in the last week and a half. Thank goodness for Pliable running their clinics at Neighborhood House, because it’s looking more and more like that’s going to be our only option (which, by the way, is going to be nearly 2 weeks after the recommended time to get the second shot, simply because there is no walk in place to go and get children a shot in WS. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
