Dear President Trump, There’ve now been a handful of rat-sightings around our next-door neighbor’s house, which probably means they are scurrying around ours too. My favorite sighting was the other morning first thing when I let the dogs out in the front yard. It was still dark but with all the street lights it’s never … Continue reading Showboaty rats

Dear President Trump, The Seattle area is having its own mini-version of the polar vortex. The temperature didn’t get above 30 today. We got about 6” of snow so schools were closed and those of us who could work from home, did. The streets are still a scary mess. We’ve only had one day of … Continue reading Why are you allowed to do this?
