Let's Talk About the Weather

Posted by Terry McNichols

We are not complaining! This has been the driest month or two on record in the Pacific Northwest and we have been enjoying it fully. But this article recently in the Seattle Times explained those of us who live here by choice so perfectly, that I thought it was worth a blog link! Here are a couple of quotes from that article:

WEATHER THAT would cancel outdoor events elsewhere in the country often is tolerated here as the price of living in "the Emerald City."

After all, if we waited for sun before we went outside, we might never leave the house.

Every year I think I'm used to it, and then the winter takes forever. People just really appreciate and savor the nice weather when it's here. You have to store up the goodness.

I have often pulled out this quote from Steven Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, (incidentally one of my favorite books) to explain how we survive: "Proactive people carry their weather with them! "
