Monday Memo: Seahawks’ blowout … Wet week … Skylight fall
Enough said: Seahawks feeling on top of the world after blowing out Jaguars. But OK, we’ll say more. The Hawks went into the game as the biggest favorite in franchise history, as much as 20 points depending on the line. They did that and then some, winning 45-17.
Fall is here, as if you hadn’t noticed. The cool temps and wetness will last into midweek, says the National Weather Service. It’s expected to dry by Thursday, however. And get this, the first snow report, in the mountains: The snow level is expected to drop to 7,000 feet with six inches up there. The forecast.
Gas prices same as last week: The AAA auto club reports the average price of a gallon of gasoline in Washington is $3.74 — that’s 27 cents above the national average, says the AAA. Seattle area: $3.76.
There are reports that Bertha is churning along this morning. We’re checking it out.
Bad water in Burien: Some 5,000 customers in that area were asked to boil their water after E.coli was found in it on Saturday. The customers are in King County Water District 54.
Boys will be boys, but this was dangerous as all heck: Boy hurt in fall through school skylight. Three boys were trying to jump over the skylight at a North Seattle school. Obviously, one didn’t make it. Apparently he’s going to be OK.
