By the numbers
According to a list of 2004’s 100 largest publicly held companies based in Washington, Eastside online-content provider Infospace had the biggest single-year jump in ranking. The Bellevue company rose from 79th in 2003 to 40th in 2004. Four Eastside companies made the state’s top 10 last year. No real surprise that first and second place went to Costco and Microsoft. AT&T Wireless Services in Redmond and Bellevue’s Paccar took fifth and sixth, respectively. Companies were ranked by revenue.

If you’re a nine-to-fiver, you’ve probably noticed that it’s no longer completely dark during your evening commute. In fact, at the beginning of next week, the sun will start setting after 6 p.m. everywhere on the Eastside. Sunset is now a full 90 minutes later and we’ve gained a total of almost three hours of daylight since the first of the year. The first day of spring is slowly but surely creeping up on us.
For every inch of rain that falls on Lake Washington, the 22,138-acre body of water gains 601,440,976 gallons of water.
