Last weekend when we walked the BeltLine, there was a constant flow of pedestrians, and a few bicyclists. Today, almost no one.
BTW, flag flying in the rain? I thought that was a HUGE no-no.
[Pause to G00gle.] Ah, it’s okay if it’s an all-weather flag. Assuming this is that kind. I could hear it flapping; it was really snapping in the breeze.

Hmmm… how often would a flag fly in Seattle?
I do know they want to have it lit, if it is to fly at night.
And I have been schooled in the etiquette for lowering to half-staff and then raising again.

I remember somebody once asking the Haisley principal why the flag was up in the rain. I don’t remember the exact words but apparently the safety patrol had a keystone cops kind of morning and the flag was up because it was *up* (as in *finally*). Nowadays, I’ve been noticing the Haisley flag seems to be up 24-7. Doubt that it’s an all-weather flag but who knows.
