Seattle-ites: I don't get you.

Let me first preface this with the disclaimer that this is certainly not directed at ALL Seattle-ites. Only those of you who complain about this absolutely GORGEOUS weather we have been having.

I mean COME ON!! We live in this city of ours 12 months out of the year, with about 9 of them scattered, er, filled with rain showers. And now that we are finally getting our pay back for all those months and remembering all the amazing reasons why we live here, it seems everywhere I go people can't wait for the weather to cool off.

Seriously?! I mean, seriously?!

On the radio... "Don't worry folks, cooler temperatures coming up..."
In the elevator... "Whew....too hot out there for me!"
Co-workers... "We're just not used to this in the Northwest, this is too hot for here..."

Well, to all you apparent-warm-weather-haters, I say bite your tongue. We are truly blessed to live in this incredible part of the country (even when it is raining!) and we should enjoy EVERY SECOND of this weather.
So there. I'll get off my soap box now and go enjoy the patio.

Ditto!! I couldn't agree with you more on this! People complain about the cold and rain - understandable! But no complaining about the sun and warm/hot temps - I love them and am already missing them today.
