The Morning Memo / Wednesday: Underwear thief, skinned cat, machete, cold

Weather: Big news is the cold and the fog. You’d swear it was November. Oh, right, it is. Cold in the city overnight. Temperatures dropped to the high 30s, and in Bremerton, Olympia and Shelton it was 27 degrees at 6 a.m. Yikes. There’s snow high up in the mountains, with a winter storm warning for up there. Might be sunny this morning down here, but clouds are supposed to roll in. Temps might reach the low 50s during the day. Details.

We imagine the Occupy Seattle folks are tickled pink over this headline: Bank of America nixes $5 debit fee

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Cascade Natural Gas rates going down this winter (Bellingham Herald)

Stories you might want to read before walking out the door:

Sharing space with wildlife. The photo comes from a story by Pacific Magazine columnist Valerie Easton on dealing with critters when they invade our world.

Ribbon cutting: OK, these aren’t terribly exciting, but we plan on covering one for a new school library at West Seattle Elementary. It’s possible due to a $200,000 donation from Target, one of 42 such projects in the country this year. Good news about our education system is always welcome.
