Before we get to what’s happening today/tonight, more holiday-related info:

VETERANS DAY, OBSERVED: This year the holiday stretches across two days – which can be a bit confusing. Transportation/transit info is noted in our morning traffic coverage. Government offices and schools are closed. Seattle Public Library branches are OPEN today (see below), closed Saturday. Banks are OPEN today, closed tomorrow. Many Seattle Parks facilities are closed today, including community centers and pools. (added) The postal holiday is tomorrow, not today.

    Oh no, I have a dvd to pick up and won’t be off before the library closes tonight. I will have to wait until Sunday.
