Hello and Happy Friday!
Seattle is consumed with Super Bowl fever as the Seahawks take on (and dominate) the Broncos this Sunday. I have never seen so many people in blue and green Seahawks gear. There are giant 12 flags hanging off of construction cranes, buildings, and overpasses all over town.
So, as you might imagine, this weekend a majority of Seattle will be glued to a TV on Sunday. This represents a fantastic opportunity for people who aren’t into football: Ski slopes will be deserted (if any are open, that is-we are up to 70% below normal snowpack in many areas). Stores and malls will be mostly empty. Traffic? What’s traffic?
I am spending Saturday moving some furniture, trying to get more stuff out of our basement by selling it on Craigslist, and making a couple of snacks for the party we are attending Sunday. Should be a productive and fun weekend.
Hope you have a great weekend, and that you are supporting the right team on Sunday. Go Hawks!
