Winter Gods

I know that technically it is spring, but the weather has been bordering on bitter cold–more like winter than spring. The cold is not my favorite thing, but at least wintertime makes for a good opportunity for me to wear multiple layers. So I can stay warm during the bitter cold that winter brings. This […]

Spring?

This is supposed to be spring-time, right? Or at least, that’s the whole idea now that the equinox has passed. Well, it certainly hasn’t felt like it the last week. It’s been more like…oh second-winter (which just kind of feels like I’m talking about “Second Breakfast”, but that’s another topic). I mean, here in the […]

First Snow

Officially first snow! Or, as far as I’m concerned first snow. It has been lightly snowing for the last 2 hours here, in the outskirts of Seattle where I live. Not enough to really stick, not to the ground–but it is sticking to the roofs a bit, and to the bushes, trees and plants. I’m […]

I certainly don’t remember such a large storm with hundreds–like nearly 800–of strikes of lightning […]

Weatherpocalypse

So the weatherpocalypse didn’t happen. Luckily (for us) the remnants of the typhoon hit way off shore. Which of course had all the local preppers freaking out and screaming at the National Weather Service for making them “over-prepare”. But really–better to overprepare, rather than underprepare, and then blame the NWS for not giving “enough” warning. […]

Stormy Weather

So we’re battening down the hatches around here. Or rather, getting ready for the wind storms, massive gusts, and inches of rain that are supposed to fall between tomorrow morning and Sunday morning (Thursday-Sunday). I do love rainstorms and lots of rain and wet. Hell, I definitely grew up in western Washington and I love […]
