Morning Memo/Thursday: Hey, he likes going fast

Weather: Heavy rain this morning stretching from Seattle through the Eastside and into the mountains and then snow for you skiers. Like we said, a lot of rain down here. Ah, but it could be  mostly sunny as soon as tomorrow. We like that. Showers possible Sunday. The details. The National Weather Service – Seattle.

Traffic: With all the rain, be careful when you head out. Wet pavement can mean slippery conditions. The map and cams.

Attitude adjustment needed here: Michael J. Moyle, a young man in Clallam County on trial for ramming a car with people inside, including two kids, told police in an interview that while he likes to drive fast, he didn’t hit the car intentionally, according to a story by The Peninsula Daily News. But wait, there’s more. From the Daily News story:

“I have a Mustang,” he said. “I was going fast.”

“I drive my car fast everywhere,” Moyle later added.

“I got the tickets to prove it.”

Here’s hoping that the remaing 3,000 customers without power get it back sometime today. We’re thinking that all this rain this morning isn’t helping the effort.

Amanda Knox: Count us among the local and national media — KING5, The Seattle Times ABC News (which broke the story) seattlepi.com — that couldn’t help but run a story yesterday with news that Amanda Knox wouldn’t rule out returning to Italy one day. That’s notable because she spent four years in an Italian prison in the slaying of her British roommate in Perugia in 2007. The conviction was reversed late last year.
