Not Missing Seattle #1: Spikes in the Water

I did a little series about the things I would miss when leaving Seattle and now here's one I'll start when I find something that I won't miss...First item, metal spikes put in the local beach by someone to cut the feet of swimmers...The Post-Intelligencer has more:

Four dozen metal spikes had to have been intentionally lodged in shallow Green Lake waters, city officials say, but almost a week after they were found, police have no idea who put them there.

Authorities still aren't exactly sure how long the spikes, found Sunday, were under water. They say the corrosion on the metal spikes, ranging from 12 to 18 inches long, shows they were likely there for at least a month.

UPDATE: They've found some more spikes!
