But home I got, and here's a quick Seattle photo before I turn out the lights:

Well, I'm home from Seattle, but what a drive from the airport! It seems that a truck carrying a load of watermelons was rear-ended by a car, in the middle of the Tappan Zee Bridge some time before 7 p.m. The truck managed to flip over the median and burst into flames. The truck driver was killed and the bridge is closed in both directions — possibly through morning rush hour tomorrow. By the time I got to the area around 9:30, of course everything was messed up all 'round. Traffic was diverted to the Bear Mountain Bridge, and it took 45 minutes to go the last mile there.
