Morning Memo/Thursday: Hot dog in car … Garbage strike … Super Guppy!

Weather:  No precipitation for at least a week: temperatures  in the low 70s, clear skies and sun. That sounds pretty darn good by our standards. Sandals and flip flops, for sure. (What do you think about people who wear flip flops to the office? Just askin’.) The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Hot dog rescued: We’re dismayed whenever we hear about people who leave their dogs in cars in hot weather. Someone left a basset hound in a car at a Spokane mall while they watched a movie. Temp in the car reached 114 degrees. An Animal control officer rescued the dog. KREM reports that the owner was cited for animal cruelty.

Super Guppy returns: The Super Guppy, the odd-looking plane that’s shuttling pieces of NASA’s space shuttle trainer to its new home at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, is expected to arrive here around 10 a.m. today. It was a popular sight on its last appearance a month ago. Seattle Times photographer Alan Berner provided a photo gallery of the earlier arrival in Seattle.

Garbage strike could leave things stinky: We smell trouble now that the garbage haulers have decided to strike. With some 220,000 customers, well, you get the picture. (Just to put things into perspective, there has been a long-standing garbage pickup “crisis” in Naples, Italy, that at one point left up to 2,500 tons of uncollected garbage in the streets.)

Concealed-handgun license applications got a bump here Monday, the first business day after a gunman opened fire and killed 12 people and wound 58  others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. But the raw numbers aren’t too impressive: 41 new concealed-weapons licenses Monday, 22 more than processed the previous Monday
