I can't think of a more annoying interruption to my late morning workout than a blaring cell phone alert from President Trump. Just when I was trying to let off some steam...perfect timing dude. Great to know you know how to find me. And also that there's not a real emergency? There was also some mayhem on the roads of Kirkland this morning, though. At the 116th/98th, the traffic light (in every direction) was blinking and so we all acted like grown-ups and had to treat it like a 4-way stop. Then as I head up Market St to the light at Forbes Creek Rd at a whopping 4 mph in standstill traffic, it appears that light is only letting 2-3 cars through per green light. Software issues? Also problems at lights in Houghton some friend mentioned. Anyone else experience this? Maybe Trump was checking if he could jam our grids too.
Then the afternoon came around with the news that The Slip is closing. Twenty two years and done. So no more Earth burgers for you. Heavy day, right? They will be open Thursday through Sunday until Oct 21st so you have a little time to say goodbye. And also hello to Orange Theory opening soon on Park Lane (you read that right, another gym in the -033 now?!)
