Morning Memo/Tuesday: May Day protests today … Sea-Tac and Wi-Fi … Home invasion

Weather: Snowing at Snoqualmie Pass, in May. Chilly this morning, as in the 40s. A high only in the mid-50s, but there might be sunbreaks, and rain today. Something for everyone. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Second best … probably good enough: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has been rated the second best airport in the country for the availability of Wi-Fi and numero uno for its coffee (of course), according to Travel & Leisure magazine. Coffee is a no-brainer.  Wi-Fi availability had only to go up, because, as you might remember, it used to cost ya. … That’s the good news. We ranked just  15th in cleanliness (ewww, is it the restrooms?) and 10th in overall service.

Home invasion in Mukilteo: Four were arrested in a robbery at a home in Mukilteo overnight. Three men entered the home and robbed those inside. All four took off in a car. Police chased them. They stopped their car and ran. Cops caught them, though. All of the suspects are from Kent.

May Day protests: Could be a traffic mess in downtown Seattle today as thousands march as part of a global strike to support workers. Let’s hope things remain peaceful, as organizers say. Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn said last week there were signs “others” may show up “with the intention of using the public demonstrations as an opportunity to commit violence, damage property and disrupt peaceful free-speech activity.”

Bleach in the eyes of a toddler: As you might imagine, the story of the mother charged with putting bleach in her young toddler’s eyes has generated outrage among readers. From our story: The mother said “the girl’s eyes had been swollen shut for about four weeks and that the child slept almost 22 hours each day,” according to charges. The child might be left permanently blind.
