Morning Memo / Saturday: Canadians at Costco … Taylor Bridge wildfire … floating hot dog stand

Weather:  Starting to cool down today, with the high around 80 degrees. Tomorrow should be in the lower to mid-70s. If you look way off into the long-term forecast, we could get some rain again next weekend. The National Weather Service forecast is here.

Traffic: The highways look wide open this morning. The Mariners play at 6:10 p.m., and Hempfest continues through 8 p.m. on the waterfront. The maps and cams are here.

Canadians at Costco: Some folks want to have Americans-only hours at the Burlington Costco, saying the huge number of Canadians crossing the border to shop has made the store too crowded. They’ve taken to Facebook to campaign, and city officials are doing damage control.

Taylor Bridge fire is still about one-third contained: Residents today will start going back to their homes to see whether they’re still standing and, if not, what might be salvageable.

From food trucks to food boats: Seattle has an on-the-water hot dog stand on Lake Union. You can tie up and eat.
