Thursday Memo: How our traffic rates … Blustery day … Sounders tonight

We don’t have to tell you that traffic congestion in the Seattle area is downright nasty. OK, we lied. We’re going to tell you anyway. We have the nation’s fourth most congested roadways, according to the Tom Tom Traffic Index. Only Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu have it worse. Honolulu?

Winds in the forecast today: Remember all that wind last Saturday? Well, we’re in for some more today. Morning winds are expected to be 20 to 30 miles per hour and could gust to 45. And, of course there’s all that rain out there today. There’s no hope for a break in all this dreariness, with more of the same throughout the weekend. Bummer? Nah, we’re used to it. National Weather Service forecast

It’s do or die for the Sounders tonight: The squad meets the Portland Timber in Portland, where Seattle has to win to advance in the playoffs.

Seriously? A Moses Lake man and woman have been busted for allegedly selling morphine prescribed for the woman’s 83-year-old father. Near an elementary school no less. One News reports.

How does an underwater cable get cut? Severed underwater cable cuts CenturyLink service to San Juan, Orcas and Lopez islands

Memo light: 

And before we go ... This is so Seattle. And we mean that in a good way. There’s a coffee shop in West Seattle offering light therapy with their cortaditos and lattes, says freelance food writer Rebekah Denn, writing for The Times.

Hotwire Coffeehouse has set up full spectrum light boxes to help address Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) by imitating light from the sun and providing vitamin D.

SAD is a problem here in the Northwest so how user friendly and clever are the people at Hotwire?
