Monday Memo: Heavy rain today … Boy killed hunting … 777X orders

Uh, oh … It could get mighty wet around here: Another storm could blow into our area this afternoon with heavy rain down here and more snow at the higher elevations in the mountains, says the National Weather Service. We could see about an inch of rain in the lowlands and up to 3 inches in the mountains. The snow level should rise from 4,000 feet to 5,500 feet tonight, so the passes will see a mix of rain and snow. Mount Rainier and Mount Baker could get a foot or more of new snow. National Weather Service forecast

We hate to read stories such as this: A 16-year-old kid was killed Friday while hunting with his family in Pend Oreille County. He died from a single gunshot wound. Deputies found his body down a logging road about 200 yards into the woods. The Yakima Herald-Republic reports.

Seahawks: Marshawn Lynch, Percy Harvin, Russell Wilson. Enough said.

Whoa, that’s a lot of planes and a lot of money777X takes off with big Mideast orders. Three Middle Eastern airlines signed up yesterday to buy 225 of Boeing’s new 777X jets, helping to bring the initial batch of orders for the plane to $95 billion. Now where will those planes be built?
