Chaos in Seattle tomorrow

Well, today's post is a little different. I was going to post about a nice home phone deal from Amazon, but when I went to order it for myself (we need a new home phone. Our current one can't be used when the microwave is in use. Weird.) it had already sold out. Bummer. In case they replenish the stock, here are the details:

Uniden TRU9485-3 3-Handset 5.8GHz Digital Telephone w/ Answering Machine (Refurb) $29.99 Free Shipping

5.8 Digital Expandable System
Digital Answering System with Handset Access
10 Handset Expandability (Maximum)
Caller ID/Call Waiting Deluxe† - To activate the Caller ID and/or VoiceMail features, you must subscribe through your local telephone company.
Handset Speakerphone - This feature gives you the freedom to use the handset as a speakerphone.
Base Duplex Speakerphone
Advanced Phonebook Features: - Store up to 100 Names, Store Up to 2 Numbers per Name, Alphabetical Search, Personalized Ringers, Transfer Single Listing or Entire Phonebook
New Message Waiting Indicator with Alert Tone Option
Intercom or Call Transfer Between Handsets
20 Ringer Options - 10 melodies + 10 tones
Room Monitoring
Ringer Off Option
Find Lost Handset / Paging Key
Headset Compatible - Allows for an optional headset to be connected for convenient hands-free operation.
2 Extra Caller ID Handsets and Chargers Included

This looks like a really nice deal, but they are gone for now. . . .

So instead, I wanted to let the local readers know about the perfect storm of traffic problems in Seattle tomorrow. First of all, The Seattle Sounders FC will be playing a match at Qwest Field starting at noon. Second, the Mariners have a game at Safeco at 1. Third, there will be preparations for the Seafair Tourchlight Parade and Run (it doesn't start until around 6, but my understanding is that they will be closing some streets downtown early and they are expecting around 300,000 people!). And of course, there is always construction. So, there you go. Don't say you weren't warned! (Just go to the Tacoma Rainiers game instead!
