Communities Another gun bill stalls in state legislature Another gun bill stalls in state legislature
Another measure seeking to control gun violence failed in the state Legislature on Wednesday, with senators deciding not to vote on a bill that would have required people to surrender their weapons when they are placed under a restraining order.
Communities Yet another chilly spring on tap for the Northwest? Yet another chilly spring on tap for the Northwest?
It seems like a broken record:

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2008.(Coldest start to June on record)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2010. (2nd-longest wait for first 75 degree day of year)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2011. (Coldest April on record, 2nd wettest March-April)

Did you hear? It was a chilly spring in 2012. (3rd wettest March on record)

If long range forecasts are to be believed, tune in next year when I add a line for 2013.
