It was Bad Luck Morning. Enterprise was late and confused with the rental, 2 miles into Washington State I got pulled over for a speeding ticket -- my first and only in 23 years of driving -- and at milepost 54, at the rest stop, the plastic fob for the minivan stopped working (dead battery) with *everything* locked in the van.
Then it began to snow.
Actually, everything turned out fine and we laughed a lot about all the "bad luck". We ate bananas and candy for lunch, but we made our 1:30 appointment at Seattle Public Library. Staff gave us a full tour with many behind-the-scenes views.
Besides the dramatic architecture and intriguing color choices, our guests were most interested in the public access computers, the virtual services, and the auto-sort machinery.
