in the news
An editorial about keeping NOAA's research vessels stationed at Lake Union in Seattle.
To be fair, I also understood that the Port of Everett was also in the running, and really, perhaps a lot of the businesses (and folks working at them) that service these ships would not mind so much moving to Everett, because housing is much cheaper and one could actually afford to live closer to work, something many of us in this traffic-congested region would love to be able to do.
In other news, they have opened I-5 at Chehalis finally. I feel badly for the poor folks having to clean the mud out of their homes (some of them for the second time in only 11 years) - just in time for the holidays. Give to local charities helping out if you can.
