Tuesday Memo: Snow and mud … Tragic Tacoma case … Firefighter saves girls

National Weather Service / Forecast

Someone said it was snowing. How about where you live? Snow was falling overnight in Issaquah and other points east of Seattle, but not too much. Snow also fell in Tacoma and as far south as Olympia. Some schools have closed, some have started late, some have changed bus schedules to deal with the snow. Go to schoolreport.org for more. It’s not going to get much warmer today, with a high hovering around 39 degrees. That’s chilly, ain’t it?

That mudslide south of Everett: See our story about this rather big slide, but if you want to see the slide in all its glory, go to KOMO-TV’s video of the mud breaking from above and crashing into the train. Quite a sight.

He went looking for his dog and was shot dead: A 16-year-old kid has pleaded not guilty to a charge of killing the Tacoma man who was out looking for his dog one night last month. Police say it was a botched robbery attempt as the man sat in his pickup in a convenience store parking lot. A 16-year-old. The man’s dog was found safe. The News Tribune in Tacoma has the story.

Jake Locker, of Ferndale and the University of Washington, helped the Tennessee Titans beat the New York Jets last night. Always nice to hear when a local kid does well, isn’t it?

Boy, this could have been a lot worse: Two girls were rescued by an alert off-duty firefighter who saw their car roll and overturn into a water-filled ditch in Clark County last night. By the time the firefighter used a special tool he had with him to break a window so the girls could crawl out, the car was already filling with water. Good to hear the girls were unhurt. Imagine they were a tad scared there for a bit, though.
