Lunar Eclipse

This was what I could capture from Sunday night's lunar eclipse.  This was taken from our deck in Maple Valley with my cell phone.  We were able to observe a great deal driving from Woodinville, where we had watched the Seahawk game with family, through Duvall, Carnation, and Fall City. On the drive the red color of the moon was more apparent, however, I don't think my camera could really have done it justice.

Chancellor Rejoins The Seahawks

Was missing Safety Kam Chancellor a factor in the Seahawks losing the first games of the season?  Last Wednesday, Chancellor decided to rejoin the team after holding out since the beginning of training camp.
  A scathing column by Seattle Times writer Matt Calkins, published the morning Chancellor announced his return, may or may not have been a factor. It just seemed a little too coincidental to me.  You can read that column by clicking here
The Hawks face the Chicago Bears this afternoon at Century Link Field.
