Saturday Memo: Bats in the attic … Lightning strikes plane … STP ride

sat_memoNational Weather Service forecast

Hundreds of bats move in: A Columbia City home has become the summer retreat for 270 bats, and now the evening flight of the winged, furry creatures is the latest neighborhood attraction. The homeowners are planning a more permanent home for their local bat guests, but they don’t want to disturb them while they have pups too young to fly.

Toke up if you want: Yes, pot is legal, but you might want to check with your boss before you inhale. And apparently sales are brisk even with marijuana in short supply. The state brought in more than $148,000 in excise tax revenue the first three days of legal retail business.

Lighting strikes Seattle-bound plane: A Frontier Airlines flight bound for Seattle was diverted to Salt Lake City after being struck by lightning. No injuries were reported.

Bicyclists on their way: Some 10,000 bicyclists are headed for Portland from the University of Washington’s Montlake parking lot this morning as part of the 35th annual Group Health Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic. The fastest riders will make their destination in one day, with the rest stopping for a pasta dinner and taking two days for the journey.
