Cloudy Skies and The Summer that Wasn’t

While the rest of the country is burning up, here in the Pacific Northwest we continue to have cool temperatures. And wind. And rain. And always cloudy skies. Perhaps we’ll have no summer at all.

Earlier this week I walked along the Cedar River where sky and lake ran together in milky gray.

A later sunset walk at Coulon proved to be more interesting, especially when I played with my camera settings. We do what we can.

  1. No consolation, but it’s the same here. 16 C maximum today, and it has been raining for 24 hours. Two more days of gloom and rain to come until the ‘promise’ of something brighter at the weekend. But only 22 C max even then, so they say. 😦 Looks like we had our summer for 10 days in May!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I could do with some cooler weather! I’ll send some of the Texas heat!

  3. Come visit the east my friend! 😎It’s so different on the other side of the mountains. Glad to be out of the gray skies and rain. Temperatures here are mostly in the eighties… and nineties. Lots of sunshine β˜€οΈ

    • Aww yes! There’s always the eastside! Thanks for the reminder and will be right over! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  4. It has been lovely here, though humid. Our plants are thriving. The turkey mother and five babies have been returning regularly making me wonder where they are spending the night.

    • Sounds wonderful. I’ve never seen turkey babies! I expect summer will arrive here eventually. Until then I’ll enjoy the sunbreaks through the clouds.

      • We had never seen turkey babies either. And of course wild turkeys look totally different from those big white Butterball ones.

  5. Our weather has been cool over here inYakima as well, which you know is certainly not the norm. I am so waiting on the hot weather so my veggie garden will grow!! Bring it on! Oh, and your pictures are lovely, as usual.

    • Oh I hadn’t realized you’ve had cool weather east of the mountain too. Yes, I’m ready for some real summer weather! Thanks for your comment. πŸ™‚

  6. I like how you made those colors pop in the last two pictures. Sometimes that gray needs a little help.

    • Thanks! I think summer finally arrived today with bue skies and sunshine! Hopefully it will stick around. 🌞
