6:00 AM: Good morning! It’s Wednesday, August 10th.


Today’s forecast starts off partly sunny but moves on to a chance of showers, and a high around 70. (9:49 AM: Thunder and lightning right now – but the radar suggests it won’t last too long.)


Ferries: WSF is on the 2-boat schedule for Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth. Check here for alerts/updates.

The West Seattle Water Taxi is on its regular schedule.


Paving work on SW Andover by at the ex-encampment site between 26th and 28th is likely to continue today.


871st morning without the West Seattle Bridge. 32 days until the week SDOT hopes to reopen it. (The exact date is expected to be announced tomorrow.)

    The rain is still light, but I’ve heard several big claps of thunder down in Arbor Heights!

    • WSB August 10, 2022 (9:50 am)

      Definitely intense right now. But the radar suggests just this one cell.

  • Mj August 10, 2022 (10:11 am)

    Auto body shops get ready for increased work load!

    Is anyone’s internet out? I have Comcast and have had no internet, phone, or cable since at least the 8 o’clock hour.

      Seems to be a Comcast outage in AH. Writing about it right now to get it on the record.

Sorry, comment time is over.
