Fiendish Friday: The REAL Washington Weather


August 26, 2016 by tahenryauthoress

Whenever someone hears I’m living in Washington I always always get the follow up…

“how do you live in all that rain, I couldn’t do it.”

sigh. Yes, it supposedly rains 300 days a year in this state. Which is true. Except….

90-95% of that rain happens at night. So what they should really say is we get 275 nights of rain and 25 days. And to someone who loves the sound of rain on her roof, heaven.

The real problem with Washington Weather is the schizophrenia. Stay with me here.

It’s the second week of August. Wednesday I wore jeans, a tee shirt, a sweater, and a scarf. I eventually took the sweater off around 4 but only because I was home.  Friday I wore a sun dress and baked in 93 degrees.

I’m telling you Washington weather needs some medication. Lithium perhaps?

    Hey! Number one rule about Washington Weather – we don’t tell others about Washington Weather! (smile) Some say sunny summers are like Sasquatch – seldom seen, so seldom believed.

  2. Sounds like winter in Louisiana! They might be distant relatives, but I do see a resemblance.

  3. Other states think we’re sloppy with our multi-layers of clothes from tank tops to fleece, but it’s just necessity. 50’s in the morning and 80’s in the afternoon. What else would you wear if you were out all day?

    I have decided the Seattle Weather God is bipolar. I think it sums it up perfectly.

    Agreed! I’m over this insane heat wave we’ve got going. Two days break here in the Puget Sound before it was back to sweltering. #overit
