    I agree, I’ve serviced that area for many years with my mobile mechanic business and many of my long-time customers in Arbor Heights have brought it up as an issue… I’m all about safety first, but seems like these SDOT projects are just about filling quotas and using up taxpayer money rather than doing the job right the first time. Look at how little effort goes into repairing our local roads after a condo goes in and they rip the streets up with heavy equipment like cranes, or dig the a hole in the street for utilities and then shovel a mound of asphalt on top of it like that is going to last more than 6 months before it becomes a huge crevice or pothole. This city needs to step up to the plate or the yellow vests will be hitting the streets soon.

    I would get a pump soon and plenty of hose to drain away from the house.

    If you have a wet/dry shop vac you might be able to stop some of it.

    Also check this: it might be leaking in from the seems of the bottom of the foundation from the ground up that is..might not have anything to do with the walls.

    NOAA broke into NPR and issued a flood warning for all of Western Washington..including Seattle urban areas.

    Here’s a cool link..

    Yeah the leaves that fall in your neighbors yard are his responsibility, but the branches that hang over his yard are too, so if he wants to have less mess he can chop the offending branches off the tree growing in your yard.

    Hey WSB do you know where to report things like this?

    I couldn’t find any info online about where to report illegal loads after the below experience:

    I had a similar experience last week that PISSED me off. A big white sand and gravel truck going North on I-5 with big marble sized chunks of gravel flying out of the back. I got at least 5 dings on my windshield and 5 or 6 nicks in my paint down to the metal. I had to stop and pull over and let the mother *#&$’s pass. They took the Dearborn exit..I couldn’t get the license plate and only saw a Yellow logo on the door something sand and gravel.

    I was extremely PO’d

    This is why Bill Moyers quit PBS and warned that the organization was being taken over by right wingnuts serving on the board of directors.

    He was talking about this when I went to see him talk at the Parmount Theater a few years ago.

    PBS had a non-partisan aura about it until now. It’s a good front for neo-cons to disseminate propaganda.

    Cool site Tarik…bout time someone did that..although WSB does..it’s nice to have a site focused on live music in West Seattle.

    C&P coffee has a lot of music..didn’t see them on your site.

    My prediction: (which I hope is very wrong)

    There will be another “terrorist attack” maybe blamed on Iran or some outlandish story that the press doesn’t question (like 911).

    People are suddenly thrown into shock and awe and jingoistic patriotism ensues in full force. Somehow this attack will prompt Bush to declare Marshall Law and postpone the elections (Bush is still pissed that the PM dictator in Pakistan stole his idea last year….but who will make that connection??)

    And I heard this on KUOW that the McDork/Palin campaign has received 2 MILLION dollars from Oil companies this campaign. That’s more than BUSH and Dick got.

    However, the Obama bin Biden campaign has received 500,000 from Oil companies.

    Yeah right wingnuts love calling the media liberal…just because they feel so outnumbered.

    You know why right wingnuts think the media is liberal??? It because they still mostly use big words and complete their sentences and sometimes they seem “intelligent”.

    Liberal = intelligent I guess.

    If they had their way everyone would talk like Georgey boy or Palin or Dan Quayle.

    I totally diagree Rainday. The White Album is probably my most favorite album of all time. I relish every nuance of every song on that album. It has more atmosphere than any of the Beatles other records and it wouldn’t be complete without a single note that is on it.

    acemotel:

    Yeah that’s what I mean. Also, just the fact that she is a sitting duck as far as all the things we can crucify her for is just what the GOP wants. They want Liberals to look like big ugly bullies picking on the poor mom with a disabled child.

    It’s just more fuel for their fire really. Both sides need the other to exist and the more mean one side can make the other look the better for them.

    That’s also what I mean by backfiring a side from what started out as an innocent caricature of Palin.

    I don’t think the GOP would let her go on there without having a specific and controlled purpose in mind.

    If, God forbid, she got in office (shudddddderrrr) you don’t think she would remember all the ignorant sinners who made fun of her and want to make them repent?

    Anyhoo, whatever.

    Let’s all just live and let live. Country or no country. Listen to IMAGINE by John Lennon.

    And let’s ease House’s dissappointment by signing all our posts from now on “Proud to be American”
