Saturday Memo: $75 million more … Migrating birds … Rain on Mother’s Day

How high? That’s a question the NBA Board of Governors has to be asking after Chris Hansen raised his offer for the Sacramento Kings by another $75 million, taking it up to $625 million. The board is meeting Wednesday to decide whether the Kings stay in California or migrate north to Seattle. The NBA Relocation Committee advised the board to stick with Sacramento, but if money talks, $625 million has a very loud voice.

Speaking of migrating: Today is International Migratory Bird Day with events going on at Discovery and Seward Parks. You can watch birds, learn about birds, build bird feeders and take a wildflower walk. Check it out.

How low? And how wet? The National Weather Service says the warm, dry weather the Seattle area has had for the last two weeks could come to an end this evening with daytime temperatures in the next week returning to the 60s and rain starting Sunday and continuing through Monday. Cloudy weather is forecast for the rest of the week. But today is supposed to be sunny. So get out in it.

Mother’s Day: Have you written home to mother? Bought her a nice gift? Made plans to be with her on Sunday? If not, today’s your last day to make sure you’re ready to make Mom feel appreciated on Sunday, which is Mother’s Day.
