The good news is …

… the really bad weather should be done by this weekend, so we can all enjoy the 2nd annual West Seattle Tree Lighting (this time it’s going to be at 42nd & Alaska, and county councilguy Dow C will be the MC) on Saturday. But in the meantime, we’ve got near-record cold in the works for tonight (here at WS Blog World HQ it’s a three-cat night … oh wait, we need another cat for that) and supposedly some more snow to smack us all tomorrow night into Thursday morning, with a chaser of rain, just like the big melt of ’96 (remember that one? that’s the worst memory we can muster, having not been here for Bridge Sinking ’90).

    The sinking of I-90 was not nearly as interesting for old WS-ites as the 1978 freighter Chavez collision that took down the old WS bridge. See

    The freighter was piloted by Rolf Neslund. (We call the current bridge the “Rolf Neslund Memorial Bridge.”) He was later murdered by his wife, who then dismembered and burned the body. According to this PI article, Ruth Neslun was “famed for her homemade sausage”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
