The next few days here are going to be very warm. I realize for us that means something far less then the 100˚ plus temps some people have experienced for weeks, but hey - we do have the ocean waters that help cool things down. Call it the luck of geography.
I was born here, and only managed to move far enough from north Seattle to land on an island. LUCK!!!
As it turns out.
We have our issues here - lack of nightlife, for instance - but I must say the pros are outweighing the cons these days. It rained like mad while the rest of the country sweltered... my garden is happy. It's blazing hot now (haha), and the plants are loving it - we will soon have beans and even more zukes coming out of our ears. I dug the first small batch of yukon gold potatoes up, and they are quietly aging in the garage.
I swear, I'm going to till up the majority of the yard next year for more garden action. We could maybe even have a corn maze! As long as you don't mind walking in a straight line...
Here's some nice cooling water to help you through the hot days. Enjoy!
