Monday Memo: Fairgrounds fire … Blood moon … Weather turns

Fire at fair: A building at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup was gutted by fire early today, but there were no injuries. Most of the animals there for the spring fair got out safely, although KING5 is reporting a pig didn’t make it.

A total lunar eclipse, a blood moon, is happening tonight into early Tuesday. Will the skies be clear? Yeah, right.

Speaking of weather … Great yesterday, wasn’t it? Temperatures could reach the upper 60s today, but we’re in for some cooler weather and some showers Tuesday. National Weather Service forecast

We all know that most kids are pretty good, but that’s not always the case: Two held, gun and knife seized after threat on Metro driver

And speaking of crime, the bad guys were on a roll over the weekend:

Uh-oh: Athletics shut out Mariners, 3-0. And the M’s lost to Oakland 3-1 Saturday. In their three losses during their five-game homestand, the Mariners scored only one run, and in two of those losses, they were held to three hits or less. Not good.

A mountain biker in his 60s died on a trail in Snohomish County on Saturday. Hikers in the Paradise Valley Conservation Area found him and tried to revive him with no success.
