Eye for safety: School crossing guard Elvira Albers, 58, keeps an eye on traffic from under the cover of her umbrella as she waits in the rain to help Willard Elementary School students cross Garland Avenue at Stevens Street on Friday in Spokane. “I don’t like the rain or the snow. But I like the warm weather,” she said. “The traffic goes past this area so fast. I wish I had a megaphone (to yell at the cars).” The National Weather Service is calling for a 50 percent chance of showers in the Spokane area today, with some sun breaks and a high in the mid-50s.
