Ordinary Days after Oahu

Some of you asked that I bring back the sunshine from Hawaii and I obliged – at least in the Pacific Northwest. When we left for Oahu last week, the skies over Seattle had been gray for weeks on end, the rain unceasing and…

A Winter Walk at Seattle’s Lincoln Park

The year started out balmy, lulling us into thoughts of spring, then surprising us with sloppy wet snow. Then came the endless days of rain and even the locals grew weary.  Did we let that stop us?  Nope. We managed a walk whenever we…

Winter Scenes in the Pacific Northwest

Just last week I was walking along the Cedar River Trail, enjoying temperatures close to 60 degrees. Today we have our first snow of the year.  I like both. Wet, sloppy snowflakes have already stopped falling and the thin layer that covered the ground…

A Rainy Last Day of Fall, Two Cats and Clam Lights!

After a mostly dry fall in the Pacific NW it seems that all the pent up rain has finally been loosed in a fury making today the rainiest Dec 20th on record, with many more like it to come.  How quickly we forget! Benji…

Tiger by the Fire

It seems that summer packed up and left in a hurry this year, slamming the door on its way out. A couple of weeks ago we had the most dramatic lightshow I’ve never seen in Seattle – heavy rain, thunder, and hundreds of lightning…

Goodbye to Snowmageddon

It’s finally time to say goodbye – and some may say good riddance – to February and Snowmageddon.  But before I do, I thought I’d share a few more pictures from our epic snowy February here in the Great Northwest! Yes, it was inconvenient…

A Few Days in Juneuary

While other parts of the country are being hammered by winter storms, here in the Pacific Northwest we are enjoying a few more days of Juneuary.  While not appreciated when experienced as a cold and rainy June, Juneuary is quite wonderful when it brings…

A Good Day in the January Garden

One day earlier this month, when the sun was shining and temperatures were approaching sixty degrees,  I went outside and found Benji hard at work. “Whatcha doing there Benji?” “Getting ready for planting,” he replied. “Looks like spring is here.” “Thanks Benji,” I said,…

Dreaming of Sunny Arizona

Most of us who live in the Pacific Northwest will at some point long to escape the gray and rainy days of winter.  The lucky ones are ‘snowbirds’ who migrate south to the blue skies and sunshine of Arizona.  Unfortunately I am not one…

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
