6:01 AM: Good morning! It’s Friday, February 24th.


Sunny today, still colder than normal, high in the mid-30s. (Thursday’s high was 35 degrees, 16 degrees below normal for this time of year.)


Water TaxiRegular schedule.

Metro is on its regular schedule, but still canceling some trips, so check notification channels such as @kcmetroalerts. (Here’s our report on Tuesday’s briefing, which noted they’re still short-staffed.)

Washington State Ferries‘ Triangle Route continues on a 2-boat schedule; check here for alerts/updates and use Vessel Watch for boats’ locations.


After some unannounced road-closing work last weekend, we’ve asked SDOT if any major work is expected this weekend. Reply: No. (If you do see anything, text us when you can, 206-293-6302) … Meantime, expect some congestion around the Alki Bathhouse all day Saturday, with the Polar Plunge event drawing more than half a dozen food trucks and other event-related vehicles.
