First day of summer washed away

It’s officially the first day of summer, yes, you may stop laughing now. It’s been one of the most rainy springs on record and it just doesn’t seem to let up. Actually, it’s raining so much today that the city’s brand new pools are once again closed - how disappointing is that? Depending on which forecast you look at or listen to, some clearing is supposed to come our way Tuesday and we may even get some sunshine by Wednesday.

The South Perry Blog would like to know how you cope with the rain? How’s the yard doing? Have ducks moved in yet? Are the tomatoes holding up? What are some of the things you usually do in mid- to late June that you’ve put off?

Traffic advisory on Southeast Boulevard

This just in from the City of Spokane:

Southeast Boulevard is closed from Perry Street to Rockwood; the wind has toppled over trees and they’ve pulled down power lines - please find a different route if you have to go somewhere.

Spokane Public Schools have the day off  so there are many kids out and about. Warn them(and everyone else) never to go near a downed power line.

To report a power outage call Avista Utilities at 1-800-227-9187.

If you have any windy pictures from South Perry, please send them in. Read a full report of this morning’s and early afternoon’s wind mayhem here.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
