Weather: The heck with today, Saturday, Sunday and Monday when we can expect rain, clouds, more clouds and rain again, respectively. Tuesday, however, could be PARTLY SUNNY! The details.

Traffic: Day four of the commute with tolls on the 520 bridge. Fridays often have lighter traffic overall. Perhaps the rather low volume of traffic on the bridge this week will be even lower today. The map and cams.

Mandatory spaying and neutering? The Quincy City Council in Eastern Washington has taken a step that would probably make some folks in Seattle happy and others, not so much. The Columbia Basin Herald reports that the council has passed an ordinance requiring that all dogs at least a year old be spayed or neutered. That’s unless you can prove your pup is registered with the American Kennel Club. Sooooo, if you have a mutt and live in Quincy, it must be altered when it’s one-year-old or you can be fined up to $200.

Walla Walla is hot! Well, the temperature was high yesterday, reaching  almost 70 degrees there; 69 to be exact, says the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin. That’s just one tick off from the overall record for January over there. Let’s see, Seattle’s high yesterday was… 48.

Cut from the womb. Do you remember the story of the baby cut from his mother’s womb by a woman who attacked the child’s mother in a park? The child, a boy, is now 3-year-old old. The woman who attacked the mother was sent to prison.
