...any Seattle-based plans (especially if they involve food)?

Nothing STN-based has been planned as of yet. I know that Mr. & Mrs. Sunshine were interested in getting together at some point. Shrug

Weather and freezing level are not exactly encouraging but I do plan to head out later this morning and should be there late afternoon.

Tomorrow looks much better ...

Ok, so Winthrop's out for tomorrow. Since no one else seemed to be planning on joining us, this should make a difference to anyone  Razz

Happy Rainfall!

Looks like they have made good progress on clearing Hwy 20 and are predicting it to be open on May 10th !

"Day 24, May 3, 2012 (Thur. Week 6)
The crews worked under less than ideal conditions with cold temperatures and snow all week, but they made good progress and we’re making our first reopening prediction for next Thursday, May 10."

I don't suppose you wanna try for next weekend before you leave ???   Hmmm ??  Bigok

We have plans Friday night and as Dan pointed out, we probably should stick closer to home the day of our flight.  However, great news on Opening Day! I have a feeling that "someone" I know will be making that trip  Bigok

Colleen,

Sorry to hear that the pass was not open during your stay. it looked so darned close, too! But, alas, mid week last week there was new snow at the higher elevations throughout the region. I at least hop you managed to get some riding in.

Cheers,

Kai

Yes, while the passes remain elusive, I took Dan on a tour of the lowlands last Saturday. We buzzed up from Preston-Fall City all the way up to Arlington (some mist near Granite Falls, but otherwise dry and cloudy). From Arlington we headed over towards La Conner and Mt Vernon, spotting that last few tulips left. By then the sun had overcome the clouds and we had a lovely view at Deception Pass and down Whidbey Island, where we were just in time to catch the Keystone-Port Townsend ferry. Port Townsend is going through some serious downtown sidewalk renovation, so we didn't stop. Then we took the usual roads to Bremerton (I saw a minke whale off the Hood Canal bridge!), dinner at Taco del Mar while we waited for the ferry back to Seattle. The ferry ride was lovely, with the skyline popping into view and a hint of the Cascades behind it.

 Inlove
