Pretty Clouds at Sunset and More Rain in the Forecast

No, it’s not my imagination – we’ve had record amounts of rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Seems like I say that every year. But according to the Seattle Times, “With 18.91 inches of rain recorded at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport between Sept. 1 and Nov. 28, and another atmospheric river of rain due on Tuesday, it’s looking like this will go down as the wettest early fall on record.”

Yippee. 😉

But we did manage to score a rain-free day yesterday and by late afternoon I got to enjoy this wonderful sunset out my front door.

Today the sky is milky gray, the clouds no longer beautiful. Just full of rain.

  1. Beautiful photos! I’ve seen the videos on TV about the rain up there, wow, please send it down here to Las Vegas!

  2. Beautiful skies. I’m jealous! Here in Denver, we have broken the record for the latest snow ever, and still going. I think there is a prediction for some snow near New Years. That wouldn’t be bad if we were getting rain, but we’re not getting that, either. Well, I guess we know where all our precipitation is going – to the northwest!

    • Surprising about Denver. You’re right, we seem to have captured all the rain here in the Northwest! It did make for some very pretty skies last night when we had some clearing.

    • I was born and raised here so I guess I’m used to it. But it does get old! If I felt safe flying I would be planning a trip this winter to the land of sunshine!!

  3. Awesome photos! Having been born and raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley, I can’t even imagine what it would be like to have all that rain. But I’ve always thought all the dark clouds would be depressing. 🤔

    • Thanks so much! I sometimes wonder what it would be like to wake to blue skies and sunshine every day! I usually take a trip somewhere during the winter to get that. But mainly I’m used to the weather here having been born and raised in Seattle. It makes everything lush and green, though I get tired of the rain during the long winter!
