WEST SEATTLE SNOW: Early-morning weather notes – roads, trees, outages …

(‘Live’ SDOT camera)

It’s been snowing for a few hours now, and we have a few notes:

ROADS CLOSED: We’ve been hearing about some tree trouble – Sylvan Way in particular, apparently a downed tree. Another one is reported around 14th/Holden but not blocking the street. INFOLINKS: Here’s the SDOT map showing which streets are closed and which have been plowed. … Here’s the Metro Winter page (some parts of the region are on snow routing but NOT us so far).

SPEAKING OF TREE TROUBLE: Connie sent this photo and report:

This tree is blocking the entrance to the parking lot of the dog park off of Southwest Cloverdale at 5th.

POWER OUTAGES: A few pockets of southernmost West Seattle (Seola, Myers Way) are part of a 4,300-customer outage – see the map here. ADDED 3:11 AM: Now a West Seattle outage too – more than 500 customers:

(4:39 PM: SCL says it’s hoping to have the South Park/SE WS areas restored by 7.)

FORECAST: This is expected to eventually change over to rain. But right now we’re still under a Winter Weather Advisory. (4:25 AM NOTE: We can hear the steady melt from the roof, so we’ll see what’s left by daylight.)

See trouble? Text us at 206-293-6302 – thank you!

    Lots of flickering of our lights about 15 minutes ago but power has stayed on so far. Seaview neighborhood (49th/Edmunds)

    Power went out in the South Shorewood neighborhood (Shorewood Elementary) since around 2:15am but our generator kicked on so all is good! We are very, very lucky to have it.

      Same area and still out. Didn’t expect this one. Gonna be a tough morning without coffee.

      Restored around 9:15 am.  Kid didn’t get to watch the World Cup game they were excited about. But, given the outcome, maybe watching just highlights is enough.

    Just saw a plow go up and down 26th Ave SW between Roxbury and 106th. I haven’t left the house to look at any side streets but I’m guessing if you can get to an arterial driving should be pretty easy.

    Power STILL out at Arrowhead Gardens senior complex, now almost 11 hours without heat or any power. Seems like the seniors and disabled are always last on the list…

      Sorry to hear that. SCL still has 1,000+ customers out around the service area.

      • Dan December 3, 2022 (1:31 pm)

        Thank you. I hope you’ll post an update as soon as you know something. Phone is running out of power…

      • WSB December 3, 2022 (4:36 pm)

        They just tweeted that they hope to restore that area by 7 pm.

  • Lindsey December 3, 2022 (1:48 pm)

    2pm. The power is still out at our house near south seattle college and we’re starting to worry it won’t be back on before dark. 

  • Aggies world December 3, 2022 (1:56 pm)

    It’s 2pm, uppergoat trail……is the power coming back on anytime soon? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
