It's been pretty cold and rainy here the past few weeks. Windy conditions with temps in the 50s and 60s. While that's considered almost balmy for Western Washington, usually by June we can count on putting on shorts. Right now, we're still dressed in Gortex and fleece. As my husband is fond of saying, "It's colder than a witch's tit." Having never gauged the temperature on one of those, I'll take his word on it.
According to this morning's Seattle Times article, we are now colder than parts of Siberia. That about says it all, doesn't it?
But it's not all doom and gloom. I'm trying be positive: Think of the money I'm saving on sunscreen and air-conditioning! I can keep my pale jiggly legs covered in jeans for a little while longer! My grass is staying green and watered! Um, that's about it for the positive aspects. I let you know if I think of more.
I'm so proud of myself for staying zen about all this weather. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to turn up the thermostat on my heater and take a hot shower.
