Sunday memo: Seahawks-Vikings . . . Philippines benefit . . . Start skiing

weatherRunning game: Today’s NFL game at CenturyLink Field might settle the debate over which team — the Seattle Seahawks or the Minnesota Vikings — has the better running back — Marshawn Lynch for the Hawks or Adrian Peterson for the Vikings. Or, the Seahawks might turn to their passing game with the debut of receiver Percy Harvin. You’ll just have to watch to find out. Game starts at 1:25 today.

Helping out: About a dozen singers and bands will be playing today at the Filipino Community Center, 5470 Martin Luther King Way, to raise money for those hit by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Cost is $25 for adults and $15 for students. The music starts at 2 p.m.

Skiing begins: “Mother Nature has delivered,” is how the Stevens Pass ski area web site puts it. With 10 inches of new snow, the ski area on Highway 2 has opened. Whistler in British Columbia is also open, and even if you are not a skier or snow boarder you will find plenty to do there, says Seattle Times travel writer Kristin Jackson.  Two lifts open at Crystal and lift tickets reduced to $25. We could go on, but maybe we’ll head to the slopes instead.

Driving in snow: That’s what you can expect if you head for the slopes. Compact snow and ice on Stevens Pass; slush and rain on Snoqualmie. If you stay in the lowlands, be prepared for rain. Decreasing rain for Seattle in the week ahead with cloudy skies and temperatures in the 40s.
