Sitting on southbound 405 in Bothell this morning, the traffic information board displayed this message. Obviously the autocomplete function was on and no one proof read the message.

These two photos of the city Skyline were taken this morning from Kerry Park at Sunrise (6:54 am). Unfortunately there was heavy cloud cover and the Sun was not visible. The Fall Equinox starts this evening, so sunrise will be coming later, and sunset will happen sooner.

Took these images Saturday night with fog rolling in and out.
A Meade 6-inch refractor and Nikon D3000 DSLR was used for all images.
