Northwest weather

Call for common sense

What a relief to read Clifford F. Mass’ words [“A rational response to extreme weather,” guest columnist, Jan. 13]. He is a breath of fresh air (pardon the weather pun) and demonstrates common sense.

Will public officials please take heed? Comprehensive and coordinated development policies, emergency-response plans grounded in reality, and common-sense management by our leaders will go a long way toward mitigating the panic and disaster that ensue each and every time we have a relatively predictable weather event.

— Hannah Kimball, Bellevue
