The Morning Memo / Friday: SNOW!, Occupy Seattle & SCCC, WSU student burned

Weather: Yikes! Snow in the mountains by tonight: The National Weather Service says a system moving in later today will bring gusty, wet weather and mountain snow to the state with 6-11 inches in the Cascades and Olympics. Goodbye autumn, hello winter. At least at the higher elevations, so watch out if you’re heading over any of the passes tonight.

Down here in Seattle, there’s a 100 percent chance of rain which is expected to start coming down between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. It’s going to be windy, too, reaching 20-23 mph and gusts up to 32 mph.

It’s Veterans Day: School is out, federal offices closed. The details. And a nice story written by staff reporter Erik Lacitis.

It’s also 11-11-11. Staff reporter Susan Gilmore’s story on this once-in-a-century event: 

Here’s a factoid from the story:

 A football team has 11 players; the largest cat in the world is a Siberian tiger, which measures 11 feet in length, and the most Oscars any movie has earned is 11 — a feat achieved by “Titanic,” “Ben-Hur” and “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.”

KING5 says officials and some students at Seattle Central Community College aren’t too happy with Occupy Seattle folks. Fed up with costs, college wants Occupy Seattle out.

A bit from the KING5 story:

The college president says protesters are using the college bathrooms, destroying the campus lawn, which needs to be replaced, and littering drug paraphernalia.

“We’re finding needles, hypodermic needles, in our child care center area,” said SCCC Spokesperson Judy Kitzman.

The college is in a legal loophole and can’t kick occupy out.

Remember we told you recently that a Washington State University student got seriously burned… Well, details of what happened are now out in a story by The Associated Press.
