It is now officially summer. Here in Seattle, we're having a little two day heat wave. Yesterday it was 76 and today it is supposed to be 78! Crank out the fans, sandals and sunglasses. But keep the fleece and rain gear at the ready, because Summer does not really start here until mid July. The weekend forecast for example? Showers, scattered showers, partial clearing and sunbreaks. Yes, sunbreaks are a bonafide meteorological term out here!
But who am I to complain about Juneuary in the Pacific Northwest? We could be hot hot hot like the rest of the country. Instead we are an oasis of green. Nice.
