    Given the winds predicted, this could be interesting to watch after sun rise. Bit on TV early this AM of an 'attempted landing' at Sea-Tac. Been a long time since i've seen a commercial air liner abort a landing. Gear just touched the ground and plane is rocking like a toy!:eek:

    Fred, it should be an exciting drive later tonight. (If it's not closed.) Seahawks game tonight, too.

    Yeah, 520 at 10 p.m. was not a fun drive. I couldn't decide which lane was less dangerous, and the Eastern highrise was really bad. And lots of fun wave action!
