It started pouring today – probably an hour ago – two hours before I drive to West Seattle for dinner at Spring Hill. Even though I should know better, the Southern California girl in me hears the rain, shrugs, and thinks it will be sunny tomorrow. And then. . . I talk to my husband. The conversation generally goes something like this:
Me: “It’s pouring outside, I’m going to have to rethink my shoe selection.”
Him: “Yeah, I should probably take the window fans out tonight.”
Me: “Why, it’ll be sunny tomorrow, right?”
Him: “Honey. It’s over. We’ve officially entered Season 2 – 9 months of rain and gray.”
And then I cry.
Ok, not really, well, maybe just a little bit on the inside. So, goodbye strappy sandals and flip flops, goodbye short sleeve tops and dresses, goodbye sun. Hello boots, sweaters and Vitamin D supplements.
Alaska Air get ready for some serious mileage accrual, I’ll be seeking out the sun soon!
