Snow notes from Thanksgiving eve

Posted by Mike on November 24th, 2010

11:41 a.m., Roosevelt Way Northeast outside the Blue Saucer.

Vinnie’s been found! Vinnie, the lost dog we posted about last night, is safe.

Dave writes: “Yes! Thank you very much for your assistance. Somebody saw your blog and phoned us. We will go pick him up later this morning. Thanks again.”

Note: Thanks to whoever sheltered Vinnie.

The National Weather Service has some cheerful news:

THE COLDEST TEMPERATURES WILL OCCUR THIS MORNING WITH SOME LOCATIONS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS. THERE IS A CHANCE WITH THE SNOW COVER THAT THE COLDEST LOCATIONS IN WESTERN WASHINGTON COULD BE BELOW 0 THIS MORNING. SEATTLE-TACOMA AIRPORT HAS ALREADY SET A NEW RECORD LOW WITH 14 DEGREES. ICY ROADS WILL BE A PROBLEM THROUGH THANKSGIVING MORNING.

Note: It’s a balmy 20.7 degrees here at Maple Leaf Life.

The University of Washington somewhat belatedly canceled classes today. Note: read the comments.

The city’s Emergency Operations Center announced: “SDOT dispatched pedestrian response crews from both its Haller Lake and Charles Street bases of operations by 8:00 a.m., with help from its Urban Forestry unit, for a total of twelve crews dispatched citywide.”

Note: Maple Leaf Life still doesn’t know what a “pedestrian response crew” is.

    Pretty sure they clear sidewalks and bus stops. Seattle City Council mentioned in a Facebook post there were crews out.

    If folks are lucky enough to have sidewalks and fit enough to handle the exertion, be neighborly and shovel your walk.

    Looks like the cavalry have arrived in the form of snow plows!

    If I had a walk I would very gladly shovel it.
