Summertime in Seattle?

My calendar tells me that it is summer time - it is after the 21st of June.

Yesterday, I wore shorts and a t-shirt to a swim meet and I got sunburned on my legs. Today, I wore pants, a sweatshirt and a Gore-tex parka because it was cold and rainy.

Only in Seattle could summer be like this.

I learned an old Northwestern adage today.

If you can't see Mount Rainer, it is raining.
If you can see Mount Rainier, it will be raining soon.

Ain't that the truth.

don't forget "If you don't like the weather, wait an hour" - during my tenure at least, NW summer weather was usually really variable.

In any case, it could be worse - it's been mid 90s with 50+% humidity here recently - blech!

Erik - thats a good one too. As to the humidity, thats not for me either.

All the time I spent in the South wasn't my choice, it was the Man's.
