The Morning Memo / Monday: Sunny?! You betcha

Weather: When’s this rain gonna stop? It has. And we’ll even see sun today. What, are we dreaming? Nope. Weather Service says partly sunny and a high of 47 degrees. Yeah, baby. And what’s this? Sunny Wednesday, Thursday and Friday? Hello! That’s in the forecast, too. The details.

More weather: The numbers: Although we will have some sun, we thought it might be worthwhile looking at how wet it has been so far this month … Not so much as you might think. As of Sunday, we’ve had 5.07 inches of rain, according to preliminary data from the National Weather Service. That’s .84 of an inch less than average for this point in November.

Of that, 2.06 inches fell during a 24-hour period Nov. 22-23.

We’ve had measurable rain on 15 of the 27 days.

We’ve had only one clear day, 16 partly cloudy days and 10 cloudy days.

Sounds like Seattle to us!

Traffic: The tanker crash on I-405 last night has been cleared, and the highway has been opened. The map and the cams

Oops, not so politically correct? Selah Mayor Bob Jones says he has no regrets about telling a man at a council meeting to get a job and a haircut.

In a bit of shameless self-promotion,
two of our stories we recommend reading today:

  • Jeff Hodson’s story on the deaths of three children, including a girl from Sedro Wooley, all linked to a controversial parenting guidebook.
  • Jerry Brewer’s Sunday piece on the man who was separated from his siblings, including triplet sisters, and spent a half-century searching for them. You might want to have a look. And the comments, too.

    A brother's search, a family reunited. A photo of triplets Susan Walters, from left, Debbie Custer and Janna Kach is taken with their brother Orlando Garduno in 1960 in Hoquiam, Wash.

From Jerry’s story:

A father’s dark secret

Orlando remembers his stepfather as a tall, handsome, bald man who wore fancy suits. He was a machinist, and “a real brilliant man,” Orlando recalled. He was nice to the children, but he was always antsy.

Kniseley had a dark secret: He had robbed a bank in Detroit and escaped from prison.
