Thursday Memo: 90 degrees next week … Metal falling from the sky … Stinky cash

We’re having a heat wave … ” Temperatures are expected to climb into the 80s over the weekend and by early next week. And in some areas of Western Washington the temperature could rise to 90 degrees.Yep, that’s right, the 90s! What a change from all this rain, eh?  Even today the rain is expected to stop and we should see some sun this afternoon. Temperatures could reach 100 degrees in Eastern Washington.

Where the heck did that come from? A chunk of metal fell through the roof of a South Park family’s home Sunday, which must have given them a jolt. The Seattle police officer who wrote the report of the incident said  the piece of metal may have fallen from an “aircraft or a really big bird that had stolen a lead bar.”
