The Morning Memo / Wednesday: Snow's a comin' (sort of), UFOs, killing horses

Weather: It’s calm out Wednesday morning, but the chance of rain is 100 percent. And then, a storm’s a-comin’.  The passes could see another foot or two of snow in the next couple of days, and the higher hills around the Puget Sound area could get some snow Thursday night.  The details.

What was that in the sky over the Emerald City last night? 

Hizzoner the Mayor Mike McGinn, KEXP radio station exec director Tom Mara and Seattle Center director Robert Nellams will be signing a lease today that gives the station the go-ahead to move into the Center. Donation-supported KEXP, which has an international audience of more than 200,000 listeners a week, will be moving into a much bigger space.

We said in an earlier post that legislation has passed in a congressional conference committee giving the U.S. Agriculture Department the go-ahead to again inspect horse carcasses for human consumption, effectively restarting a horse-slaughter industry. We’d be interested in what you think about that.

What’s up with the Occupy Seattle arrests last night? We thought the movement was slowing down. Police arrest 6 Occupy Seattle marchers (The Seattle Times); Occupy Seattle protesters pepper sprayed  (KING 5).

We hope to have more soon on the woman who died recently, 15 years after being shot.

As if we didn’t know: Seattle makes list of most congested highways in U.S. (KING 5)

We call to your attention to the story on the SUV driver who plowed into the Hyundai in Lake City over the weekend, killing two people. He caused a fatal crash that killed a woman in 2009.
