The Rain, the Park and Other Things

I’m borrowing the title for this post because it fits and if you don’t know it’s a song that’s okay too –  I guess I’m showing my age. It’s been a rainy week in the Great Northwest but what else can you expect in…

Blue and Gray and Cloudy Day

Earlier this week I found a break in the rain and got my walk in at Coulon Park where the clouds were awesome. So were the Olympics wearing both snow and clouds so it was hard to tell which was which. When I returned…

Cloudy with a Chance of Rain

The smoky skies made for some interesting sunrises, sunsets, and moonrises too. But after a long, dry, summer in the Pacific Northwest, it’s good to be back to normal: Cloudy with a chance of rain. Remind me in November. – Susanne

Springtime in Seattle

After bemoaning the weather for the past week, we finally got a reprieve from the rain.  The sky was mostly clear yesterday when I met a friend for lunch at Alki Beach.  Some young ones played in the waves.  Not us. Along with our…

Rainy Day Walk and the B-17

Rain, rain and more rain was the forecast for the week, along with wind and stormy weather for the weekend.  So we weren’t surprised to wake up to heavy,  pounding rain this morning.   Did we dare go out for our walk?  We headed…

The Rain the Park and Umbrellas

If you’re going to live in the Great Northwest and enjoy life at all during the long and rainy winter months, you’re going to want to invest in a good umbrella.  You will likely have the small travel versions stashed here and there about…

Rainy Days and Bridges

If you had reason to cross the Tacoma Narrows Bridge on a dreary, rainy Monday as we did today, this would be your view. I decided to make it into something more sunny and cheerful. Fortunately these bridges didn’t let us down despite the…

Benji’s Rainy Day Blues

“Hey Benji,” I said.  “How about some fresh air?  Here, I’ll hold the door for you!” The boy was wound up tight as a spring, bouncing off the walls and terrorizing his big brother.  It was time for a break. He hesitated. “Are you…

Patches of Blue

Some days the weather outside matches the weather inside.  Today was cold and dark, with steady rain and gusty winds.  I didn’t feel like it but went out regardless to run some errands.  As I left the last store I noticed the rain had…

Rainy Day Cats

It’s a typical fall day in the Pacific Northwest, with gray skies, steady rain and two cats unable to decide whether to be in or out. Benji strikes a handsome pose through the screened picture window, apparently waiting patiently. Tiger has chosen a different…

Seattle’s Seward Park, Rain or Shine

Perhaps we should have waited for dry weather before visiting this beautiful Seattle Park but after a few stormy days we needed to get out of the house.  And so, armed with rain gear and resolve we headed out to the west side of…

A Walk in the Rain at Soos Creek Botanical Garden

Our first storm of the fall season was supposed to land today, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds up to forty miles an hour.   It still may.  But this morning I decided to brave what looked like ordinary rain and headed to Soos…
