No Kidding

The clouds lifted just enough, right after dinner, to get a look at the hills.  Want to guess what I saw?

Yep.  Snow.

We are supposed to be a temperate climate!  You know, temperate, as in moderated by the ocean.  Yes, we are in the NW corner of the country, (excluding Alaska.)  And - yes, I can read a topographical map - my house is about 380' above sea level.  We've had ZERO "playable" snow all winter.  Much to the boys' dismay.  But I can see snow right now, down pretty close to 1000'.

In fact, the North Cascades Highway, which had just been cleared for the spring, and reopened... has just been closed again.  Not that I'm going anywhere.

Of course, all the boys have soccer practice tomorrow.

Right now, 45F and raining.  It must be the global warming.

Fun times!  *eyes roll*

By this time of year, snow is rather unwelcome! We had some last week, in Rochester. Luckily it didn't visit our house, though the 38 degree temps were unappreciated!

Here's to Memorial Day and (consistently) warm weather. It is definitely time for warm breezes and short sleeves!

We hit 93 degrees yesterday with such a "lovely" level of humidity. There's got to be a happy medium somewhere! I'm thinking mid-70's, warm southern breeze, and low humidity. Yep, that's the dream spring day!! :-)

YES! Mid 70's, even up into the mid 80's is fine, without humidity. And a nice breeze.
