Saturday memo: Boston’s Suspect No. 2 … 520 bridge closed … Queen of Tonga
Boston break: Just when it seemed the daylong manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had failed, a man noticed blood on the pleasure boat parked in his backyard, lifted the tarp and found the 19-year-old college student known the world over as Suspect No. 2 in the Boston Marathon bombing.
520 bridge closed: The Highway 520 floating bridge is closed in both directions until 5 a.m. Monday. Ramps between Montlake Boulevard in Seattle and Interstate 405 in Bellevue will be closed for construction work. Well, at least we won’t have to pay tolls this weekend.
The queen of Tonga visits Seattle today. Nanasipau’u Tuku’aho, who is married to King Tupou VI, will receive a formal welcome this afternoon that will include feasting, singing and dancing. The event starts at 12:45 p.m. at 8815 S. Seward Park Avenue. This is the queen’s first visit to the Pacific Northwest, and she is here as part of the celebration of the 87th anniversary of the founding of Queen Salote College, her alma mater. Alumni of the Methodist all-girls high school in Tonga are spread throughout the globe, and many in the United States are expected to attend this year’s celebration.
Rainy weekend: It’s the weekend and it’s raining, of course. But as you head back to work on Monday, it will start drying out and getting warmer. Temperatures could climb into the high 60s by Wednesday or Thursday.
