I've been completely in denial that our summer is ending. But I think the time has come to *choke it out Megs* embrace it?!? I know most of you (especially you southerners) are celebrating the fact that you had a nice, long summer. That is not the case here in Washington. I think the past 10 months have made for one of the cruddiest in history for Seattle weather. Winter was Fall - chilly, windy, rainy....but not quite cold enough for snow...for an ACTUAL winter.
I invested in a great pair of ski pants, jacket, and boots for my little toddler because of the months of snow storms the year before and NEVER USED IT! This IS Washington, isn't it?
Then our Fall-like weather continued until....July actually. Blah, gray 50-something degree weather and rain. From October through June. SO wish I was kidding.
July the sunshine came out, and was pretty steadily between 70-80 through mid-August....a few scorchers, but nothing we couldn't handle. In fact we were GREATFUL for those sweaty, humid, hair's-curling-outta-control days (at least I was..)!
But here it is....the LAST day of August....and I have the HEAT on. Its rainy, cold, stormy...and frankly I have sweatpants, knee-high socks, and a SWEATSHIRT on right now WHILE sitting by the heater. PA-THE-TIC!
