6:03 AM: Good morning. It’s Tuesday, April 26th.

    I checked for this post around 7:30-8am and it wasn’t here but has a time stamp of 6am. I hit refresh to make sure I wasn’t seeing a cache of yesterday. Is there something delaying the post?

    • WSB April 26, 2022 (10:43 am)

      Don’t know, will have our tech person look at the log, the site does have the occasional glitch somewhere between the caching, firewall, etc. – TR

        FWIW, (perhaps), to the tech person, it was the same thing for me, only closer to 8:00 am IIRC. HP Chromebook/Chrome Browser. —Mike

  • KayK April 26, 2022 (10:48 am)

    I noticed that too, was worried about y’all!

    • Eddie April 26, 2022 (1:14 pm)

      Same Same. Worried about WSB.

  • Gill & Alex April 26, 2022 (11:03 am)

    Morning, Tracy & Patrick,Same problem over here until 6:20 AM today when it was the last time I checked.  Just didn’t show up over here in WC.

  • Yup April 26, 2022 (11:42 am)

    Was wondering the same thing. What happened to the blog…… 

  • Lola April 26, 2022 (11:53 am)

    I looked at 7:30 and did not see this as the first story on the page was about the Crime Vandal Below.Thank you for keeping us informed about the traffic.

    Seeing these comments, I’m glad it wasn’t just me and also glad it was a glitch and everyone at WSB is okay.  :)

  • Sam-c April 26, 2022 (6:45 pm)

    Yes, WSB. Glad you’re okay! I couldn’t see the traffic report post either, checking on computer in the office ( before leaving) and on the phone in standstill traffic, while trying to figure out why it was taking 45 min from N Delridge to the 1st ave drawbridge.  Good thing I gave myself 1.5 hours to get to my meeting, even though that whole trip is typ. 45 minutes total.   Usually don’t have to leave the peninsula! 

    • CH April 28, 2022 (4:38 pm)

      Something has changed for the worse in the past 2 or 3 weeks. There is much more congestion and traffic backup getting to the 1st ave bridge.

Sorry, comment time is over.
