What a day Thursday. Sea-Tac absorbed 1.05 inches of water. This broke the record rainfall for June 15 which was a paltry 0.37 inches set twice, in 1954 and 1964. Sea-Tac Airport was one of the wettest places around Puget Sound. Olympia only got 0.58 inches, which was far from its record of1.05 inches set in 1954. Out along the coast, it was a soaker. Hoquiam had 0.98 inches, breaking its old record of .0,82 inches set in 1976. The state champion is Forks or, more specifically, Quillayute Airport.
Next Tuesday is the arrival of the summer solstice - the official start of summer. But it's a little hard to imagine as we look out at a cool rainy day. In fact, today's front is a little stronger than what we usually see this time of the year and we will end up with a showery and blustery afternoon and evening. However, the weather will be sunnier in time for the last weekend of spring!
After our cool and wet spring, who would have expected a dazzling Memorial Day weekend? Mother Nature has decided to give us a break for the first holiday of the "summer" season. High pressure moved in Friday, and the pleasant weather will stick around through Memorial Day. This will be a great time to do anything outside. Grab the sunglasses and the sunscreen and hit the road. If you want to stay cool, head for the coast.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
