Fortunately, there's a stiff breeze blowing - and AccuHunch reckons we'll be about 10 degrees cooler tomorrow. That's welcome news.

I've been perusing the local news stories, and there's nothing of more than local interest: the University selected a new men's hockey coach ... people are trying to stay cool ... our state bird, the Southcentral Mosquito, has launched a new offensive & local stores are running out of bug spray ...
And then there's this, for travelers:
If you're planning on catching an Alaska Air flight out of Seattle anytime soon, get to the airport early. The Seattle Times is offering further tips for making sure you get to your plane on time.
Remember that any of the TSA checkpoints at Sea-Tac will let you get to any of the departure gates. So look for the shortest line. If you’re with more than one person, divide up to check the security lines then phone each other and head to the shortest one.
Some of the busiest times are 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. when a lot of Alaska flights leave (Alaska is the biggest carrier at Sea-Tac). For your peace of mind, allow even more than two hours to get through the ticket counter/baggage check/security lines at such times. If you’re really early, you can always get a snack or shop by the gates.
Seems obvious to me, but if you're looking for any edge you can get, then help yourself & read it.
Just call me Mr. Fix-it.
No, not this one:
