The crazy weather isn’t over yet, friends. From a snow storm, to an ice storm, and now to a wind storm, north Seattle is getting battered and beaten just a little bit more before it’s all over. And unfortunately, the combination of snow, ice, rain and high winds is never good.
This morning, Revolutions Espresso was the first one to warn us of a downed tree branch at Ravenna Blvd and NE 68th Street in Green Lake.
An SDOT worker arrived at the branch around 8:45a.m. and began sawing off pieces to clear it off the road. The right shoulder was quickly made driveable so cars were still able to pass.
The rains have made the roads easily driven, but unfortunately pedestrians are going to see the worst of it today with sidewalks only partially melted and a slippery slush to get through. Several runners at Green Lake Park this morning chose to run in the street instead of the flooded outer loop.
Weather reports for the next few days all show things evening out with just rain and average temperatures, so we should get a much needed break. Seattle City Light’s outage map currently shows no outages in north Seattle, but with today’s winds it’s best to be prepared for anything.
