Friday Memo: Monitoring landslides … Mariners’ first loss … Pick your Peeps

Landslides like the one at Oso don’t strike out of the blue, and instruments can monitor slopes in danger of falling, a University of Utah scientist says. In other areas of the world, slide monitoring systems are routine, but rarely are they used in the U.S. because of the expense. “The technologies are out there,” geologist Jeffrey Moore says. “This is something that people should really speak up for.”

Forecasters predict an inch of rain this weekend at the site of the Oso mudslide. The National Weather Service says steady rain could cause the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River to rise by about half a foot by Sunday morning.

Yep, rain. On the weekend: April rain (“showers” sounds too pleasant) will continue through the weekend, but skies should begin to clear just in time for … Monday. National Weather Service forecast

Fun while it lasted: The Mariners battled it out for 12 innings, but a homer from Oakland’s Coco Crisp (yes, that’s his real name) ended the game and gave the M’s their first loss of the season.
