And Newsweek ranked five schools in Bellevue within its top 100.

The Bellevue Square Macy’s, for example, has added very small sizes — zeros and twos — and gotten rid of its big and tall men’s section, to accommodate more shorter, thinner shoppers, Betsy Nelson, Macy’s spokeswoman said.

Snoqualmie的人口从2000年的2150迅速膨胀到2010年的10,670. 令人吃惊的是Snoqualmie Ridge的家庭收入居然这么高:超过2/3的家庭收入超过10万!

开车去过两趟Snoqualmie, 感觉特别像我曾经住过的Colorado州的Highlands Ranch, 非常新,非常漂亮、整洁。Moutain View尽收眼底。旁边就是著名的Snoqualmie Fall,也难怪中产阶级趋之若鹜。就是有点远,到哪儿都不太方便.。
