Monday Memo: Earthquake? … Caroline Kennedy … Mariners

Ballard fire: A woman in her 50s suffered second-degree burns in a small apartment building fire this morning. More to come on this story as we get it.

What earthquake? Did you know there was an earthquake west of Tacoma yesterday morning? Neither did we. The 3.5 temblor rattled folks for about 10 to 15 seconds. No injuries reported. KOMO-TV has the story.

A Kennedy visit: Caroline Kennedy is scheduled to be in Seattle this morning to celebrate National Library week. She is to visit Sanislo School Elementary in West Seattle.

That Amtrak derailment: Aren’t you glad you weren’t on that train? Southbound Amtrak train derailed near Everett It’s usually freight trains that get hit by the mudslides along the route from Seattle to Everett, not passenger trains. Oh, and Sounder service there is canceled. Duh.

Those fellas who were trying to row across the Atlantic? Two of them live in Seattle and the expedition was Seattle-based. A rogue wave ended their daunting journey. Our community partner Three Sheets Northwest has a story that looks at the local ties to adventure.

Mariners home opener tonight. How are they doing? Oh, yeah,  3-4. We hear the game is not sold out. Really? The Sounders are doing much worse, though, 0-3-1. Whoa.

The weather sucks… It rained like heck yesterday and the day before. The only good thing is we didn’t have to do yard work. The forecast.
