Monday Memo: Gun goes off in store … Those Seahawks … Oil rig on move …

National Weather Service / Forecast

This could have been worse … Gun goes off in Silverdale store after falling out of customer’s coat. Does this mean it didn’t have the safety on? Did it even have one? The guy had a permit to have the pistol. Yeah, OK. Police are forwarding the information they’ve gathered to the prosecutor in Kitsap County.

Did the Seahawks win yesterday? Just kidding. Good for the Hawks, so sad for Robert Griffin III. It was painful to watch as his knee buckled when he attempted to recover from that bad snap. (Just in case you haven’t gotten enough photos of the game, we’ve posted another one with this morning’s memo.)

Sounder North Line returns: What? No mudslides? The trains are back in business. They’ve been shutting down the service between Seattle and Everett for weeks on end. Let’s hope the hills have stabilized and the trains keep running. We sort of pay for them, right?

That floating oil rig is on the move again. It’s being t0wed to what we hope is a quieter spot in a Kodiak Island bay in Alaska after being grounded during a storm a week ago. But there is bit of a hitch. It’s being moved during another storm with 18 mile-per-hour winds and 15-foot foot swells. … How much attention have you been paying to developments in this oil rig towing story? Vote in our poll.
