Friday Memo: Snowy passes … Scary escalator … Bugs in your books?
Lot of snow in the mountains: Up to 20 more inches could fall in the Cascades today on top of the 1 to 2 feet that fell yesterday and overnight, as we told you it would. … Skiing at Snoqualmie Pass? That being said, chains were required on I-90 earlier this morning, but things are expected to settle down tomorrow, says the National Weather Service.
Escalator accident: The one that went haywire in Bellevue yesterday could have been much worse. Aren’t you a bit wary of escalators to begin with? We know some folks who just won’t use them.
Some crime news:
Three men forced their way into a Bothell home last night and got away with valuables. Three people were home at the time, but no one was hurt.
Remember the serial killer in Alaska? Well, before he killed himself a short time ago, he told authorities he had planned to kill more people had he not been caught after killing a barista up there. Uh, isn’t that’s what serial killers do?
Katt Williams. That’s all we’re going to say.
