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


Cloudy and breezy, rain likely, high around 50.


Metro is on its regular schedule, but still canceling some trips/suspending some routes, so keep watching notification channels such as @kcmetroalerts for trip cancellations and route suspensions. (Yes, we’re still waiting to hear from Metro about how the bus repairs are going.)

-Regular schedule for the West Seattle Water Taxi.

Washington State Ferries‘ Triangle Route continues on a two-boat schedule – check here for alerts/updates.


Some wondered about the backup of port-bound trucks last week. The terminal operators changed terminal opening times from 7 am to 8 am, “largely due to decreased cargo volumes coming into the NWSA gateway,” per the Northwest Seaport Alliance.

    Appreciate your note on the port traffic last week. It looked backed up today again from what I could see from the C.

    The Port traffic was a mess again today.  Backed up to Michigan on I-5.  Southbound 1st Ave backed up to Lander, as were the side streets trying to enter SB 1st Ave.  We detoured to that old “backway” (Marginal).  Hard to believe that a one hour shift change would dramatically alter traffic that much.  Something else going on?  Who would be a contact with City or State to monitor this?

Sorry, comment time is over.
