Monday Memo: Body in water … final day of Bumbershoot … Nickelsville closes
Body found in harbor: Seattle Police Department tweeted this morning about a body found floating in the water beneath the University Bridge. The harbor unit recovered the body and the medical examiner has taken custody of the remains. No word yet on details.
The day the music died: Bumbershoot, the annual music and arts festival at Seattle Center, is winding down today. (You can read a wrap-up of Day 2 if you missed it.

You can find out more from the National Weather Service.

And all of the sites have the advantage of being closer to services and bus routes than the West Marginal site.
