Good sunny Monday.
Some news this morning:
Fire pit explodes, man flies: It happened Saturday in Spokane. No wonder. The pit was built over a natural-gas line. … The blast was so powerful, it blew a man against a fence. Fortunately he suffered only minor injures. By the way, it was his birthday.
Airborne brothers missing: How sad it is that the two brothers in their 80s went missing last Tuesday while flying their light plane from Yellowstone National Park, with Seattle as their final destination. Family began to worry when they didn’t hear from Ward Zimmerman, 86, of Seattle, and his brother, Robert, 84.
T-shirts and flip flops: It’s gonna be warm and dry this week, with sunny skies and temperatures in the high 70s and the low 80s. Can this be Seattle? April was so wet. Enjoy it while you can, because the month of June can be rather rainy around here. National Weather Service forecast
The Sounders winning streak ended at five yesterday, and did they get pummeled, losing 5-0 to the New England Revolution. It was so bad we can’t even talk about it.
But what about the Mariners? We’d like to say the M’s won yesterday, but they didn’t, losing 9-7 to the Royals.
And finally, in the us and them category … if you didn’t get a chance to see the photo of the $160 million yacht that sailed into our waters last week, we’re providing another look at the grand vessel that measures 314 feet long and is owned by billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli and his wife. Drool on.
