Sunday memo: Marathon homecoming . . . Karina Schulte out of ICU . . . Getting warmer
Marathon icon home: Bill Iffrig, the 78-year-old Lake Stevens man caught sprawled on the ground in the Boston Marathon bombing photo, has returned home. The picture went around the world, but he never saw it until Friday morning.
Out of ICU: Karina Ulriksen-Schulte has been moved out of the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center. Karina and her 10-day-old son, Elias, were critically injured March 25 when hit by a pickup while crossing Northeast 75th Street near their home on 33rd Avenue Northeast. Karina’s in-laws, Judy and Dennis Schulte, were killed in the accident, and the driver of the truck has been charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. In an online journal, Dan Schulte writes that his son is occasionally feeding from a bottle and his wife is getting strong enough to start rehab soon. Elias moved out of ICU last week.
520 still closed: The Highway 520 floating bridge remains closed until 5 a.m. tomorrow for construction work. Both directions and all the ramps between Montlake Boulevard in Seattle and Interstate 405 in Bellevue.
Warmer and warmer: Drizzle today, but a clear Monday with temperatures in the 60s. Best day to play hooky this week? Probably Wednesday or Thursday, when temperatures could be near 70.
