The weather around here has been bizarre! It’s near the middle of May and it’s still getting down in the 30’s at night. It gets up in the 60’s - 70’s during the day. One might think, “that sounds really nice.” And it is really nice. However, it’s also really weird for this place. You have to remember, we live in the armpit of Washington (not the West side). They call it a steppe. Ok, most of the time they (the media, which is a joke) just boast about the sunshine, forgetting to mention the volcanic dust that sandblasts any and everything in it’s path every time the wind blows. And it blows a plenty! But, this year, we seem to be getting a lot more moisture than usual. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about our weather this year. I’m just commenting on the odd weather that seems to be hitting everywhere. I don’t know if it’s global warming, a new ice age, or just the nature of the life of a planet. In the mean time, I’ll just be thankful that it has been pretty nice over in our neck of the woods.
