Two days ago it was stormy here. Windy and rainy. Blew all the leaves off the trees, most of them anyway. The deciduous ones not the evergreen variety.

But yesterday, last night and this evening in particular, it's been peaceful, warm and dry. Fifty degrees feels like summer to me now. I've become acclimated to the weather of the PNW and now I love it (ask me again in 6 months, however,  and I might have a different answer).

We talk about the weather a lot here. A favorite saying goes something like this: If you don't like the weather, wait a minute.
The weather here is ever-changing, volatile, temperate, rainy, wet, get the idea. That's why it's important to enjoy evenings like this. And I did.
