First day of summer!

started like this:

around noon time broke to this:

then a couple hours later went back to this:

It has been 271 days since we've hit 75 degrees. For some I know that sounds like a dream but for those of us who have spent the last 9 months living in what feels like a never ending January of wetness and darkness, it's really not so fun.

A friend sent me this link today and said this pretty much sums up summer in Seattle. Everyone is so ready to pop at this point. At least I'm not alone.

i feel your pain! we got out and walked/rode bikes for the one hr this morning that the sun was out. then, even though we were out, it felt like night time... i hope it turns around soon b/c i can't take much more of this crappy summer...

I was transferred here in Sept 08 and my sister sent me the link to your blog back then because you were moving to Seattle. I have to wait 6 more months before I can request another move and I'm counting down the day to do so. I've never lived in a place so grey and gloomy in my life and I have lived in a lot of places before. It can really put you into a funk.

I hope it gets better for you once summer really starts.
