The four-day run of the Blue Angels begins today (Thursday), and that means Queen Anne neighbors will occasionally feel the roar of a jet buzzing over the Hill. The Blue Angels practice today and tomorrow, then conduct their full shows on Saturday and Sunday.

The Angels practice today from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. On Friday, they practice from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. And then Saturday and Sunday Blue Angels shows run 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. each day.
And remember, the I-90 bridge will be closing during the practice periods.
