Morning Memo/Tuesday: Snow … llama killed by dogs … that crowded caucus

Weather: Snow, particularly in Snohomish County and at higher areas in King County. Forecast calls for the snow to end later this morning, thank goodness. And then, sunshine later today, tomorrow and Thursday, with 60 degrees by Friday! The forecast.

Traffic: Slippery in many areas north of Seattle, so drive carefully. A car ran into a building on Denny Way not far from The Seattle Times this morning. Unclear if it was weather-related, though. The map and cams.

A number of schools starting late because of the snow, so check School Reports to see if it’s one of yours.

A llama was killed and a second was hurt when they were attacked by dogs in the Spokane area, according to KREM in Spokane. Joggers came upon the attack Monday. One dog has been impounded. Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service is investigating. It’s reminder that dogs are pack animals.

If you recall, a whole bunch of folks trying to get into a GOP caucus in Kennewick Saturday were crowded out. Well, the Benton County GOP has apologized for the incident, even going so far as to have precinct officers try to say they’re sorry individually.

Faith-healing death: A couple in Carlton, Okanogan County, have pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the 2009 death of their teenage son. The family tried to heal him through prayer, according to a story in The Wenachee World.

‘Nuff said: The Daily Herald says a guy who reportedly claimed aliens told him to assassinate Gov. Chris Gregoire is behind bars for making a threat. The threat was in a letter he reportedly wrote to a state office.
