We in the Northwest are made of some of the toughest material know to man. We withstand brazen weather such as mild winters and cold summers. But please, let me get on my soap box to yammer about the weather.
It was summer, or so I thought... But back in April I was nefariously deceived. I sat on the patio in anticipation of warm days and I imagined my (highly-paid) servants feeding me grapes. But, my daydreaming experienced an unforeseen interruption when the cold weather reappeared after a frighteningly short disappearance.
It is now June and rumor has it, we have still not hit 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a record.
Now, I really try not to go about making blog posts about the weather. I mean how trivial. But, as banal as it may seem, it truly is of utmost importance. After all, studies show that about 99% of norhtwesterners are dangerously low in vitamin D. This weather is really an urgent matter of public health.
But, I can no longer help myself. The red flag that told me I must vocalize my woe was when I got out my warmest winter sweaters and wool socks. It was then that I knew, someone has to talk about this (because no one is...).
Anyways, we can do nothing about the weather except to adapt and cope with our untamable feelings.
But, for all of you out there who find yourselves disconsolate and painfully forlorn in regards to the weather, let this be a reminder to look on the bright side of things. It can't get any worse, can it?
