Happy thoughts. Calm blue oceans.

Yes, I know, it’s February. Life sucks. It’s cold, and wet, and dreary, and the sun isn’t coming back fast enough. But this is getting ridiculous.

Last Wednesday we had the shooting at the Philly Cheese Steak shop in the Central District.

Last weekend we had that epic fight on I-90.

Somebody got pissed and tried to shoot up a car in Pioneer Square.

This afternoon somebody apparently stopped her car in the middle of the I-90 bridge and jumped off. She wasn’t found quickly, which in this weather may well mean she won’t be found at all.

Then some yahoo crawled on the roof of a synagogue and got trapped in a chimney.

Oh, and I nearly had my legs broken today by someone trying to accelerate onto 520 westbound while I was in the Montlake Boulevard crosswalk. (Driver #1 stopped. Driver #2 damn near ran Driver #1 into me. Then, in the grand tradition of everyone who knows they’re utterly and completely in the wrong, Driver #2 laid on the horn and screamed at everyone involved.)

Enough. Slow down. Take a deep breath. Have something warm to drink. February won’t last forever.
