September Do-Over?


September is generally a fairly dry month in the Pacific Northwest, with dry, sunny weather that lasts long into fall, even as the temperatures drop.  Not so this year.  Seattle’s monthly September rainfall averages 1.5 inches, but this year, we have already seen 2.77 inches of rain (as of September 23).  That was several days ago, and it has rained quite a bit more since then.  So we have had double our annual average of rain this month!

I’m over it.  Done.  I’m not ready to jump in puddles or scoop up soggy piles of leaves.  I’m not ready for the eternal gray dreariness of winter.  I want summer.  Or at least a dry, sunny, crisp beautiful fall.  I want to hear the leaves crunch under my feet and see a blue sky above.  I want to feel the crisp air without raindrops soaking through my clothes.  Is that too much to ask?

To make it perfectly clear….

This.

Not This…
