While the most of country is experiencing hell on earth with high humid temperatures day after day, we in the Pacific Northwest are experiencing a cooler summer than normal. Seattle has something like 78 minutes of weather over 80 degrees so far this summer. The local news is all over it, calling it the “78 minutes of summer”.
Personally my wife and I consider this to be one of the best summers of our life. We love the cooler weather and I suspect that most native born (like we are) feel the same way. But I am getting real tired of hearing people complain about how terrible the weather is here. Granted most are newcomers, but some are native born who probably should have moved to SoCal long ago. Everyday at work, I listen to a few who think their world is ending because it is not clear and in the 80’s or 90’s.
I don’t get it. Why move here or stay here (if you were born here) if that is what you want for weather. This is the Pacific Northwest, not the Southwest.
I enjoy all aspects of our weather whether it is sunny, raining or snowing. I just go with the flow. This morning when I came to work, it was raining, but right now it is party sunny and a wonderful 64 degrees. I took my normal lunch walk and enjoyed the cool breeze and bursts of sun as it appeared between clouds. Although the mountains to the East were hid by the high clouds, the heavily forested foothills were visible. The air was fresh and alive with the clean scent that you get after a rain. I was thinking it was a great day.
