Feel Good Friday: Dock ramps.

Following my daily walk around the marina yesterday, I sat on a bench and thought things and felt things. I looked at boats. I like boats. I’ve owned a few. I’ve had little ones and larger ones. I’ve jumped off of them and fished from them and been pulled behind them. I’ve sat on them on days with big questions and on lovely days with no questions. I like days with no questions.

Fire burns home in Normandy Park Tuesday afternoon

Multiple units were dispatched to the home, which appears to be a total loss. There were no injuries to residents or firefighters. A neighbor said that the fire started when a resident was heating up a BBQ grill to cook when she heard the propane tank rattling. It caught on fire and the flames moved quickly. She apparently went to go inside the house (probably to call the fire department), and when she opened her closed sliding glass doors it created a suction draft that pulled the fire into her home [NOTE: We are checking with the King County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigation Unit for confirmation of the cause].
