Change in the weather

Cloudy skies over the marina
Today we ladies walked along Squalicum Harbor under threatening, cloudy skies. With a cool delightful breeze, it lowered our average daily temperature by at least ten degrees. Some brought along a raincoat, which was not needed, and by the time we finished our walk, the chance of rain had fallen from 20% to 5%. Not a drop has made it to the ground yet, and I suspect if we get any rain at all, it will be minimal.

What a wonderful change from the oppressive temperatures of the past week. A trip to the Farmers' Market was filled with happy people, out and about, enjoying a return to our usual Pacific Northwest climate. Although it's not expected to last very long, a day or two, most of us can manage to hang on and figure we've had the worst of the summer heat by now.

I completely forgot to write a post on Tuesday, if you're wondering. I know that I am the one who has made this schedule and I can change it if I want, but it's nice to have a structure to follow. I like Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday for my posts on this blog, but maybe it's time to skip a couple now and then. It's happening even if I don't mean to, anyway.

  1. Those skies look brooding.

    I can keep a daily schedule on my photoblog without a problem, but I decided to take a few weeks off on my writer's blog.

  3. That is an amazing sky.
    I hoped to get rain here yesterday. And was disappointed. Incontinent pigeon rain only. Splat, splat and it was gone.

  6. We took advantage of cooler temps to get out and about too, including a farmers market. There was a lot of rain in Puyallup, but we don't seem to have had much here in SeaTac.

  12. Cooler days are appreciated so much! The worst of the smoke seems to be passing through here. We've had days in the 90s. But fall will come...and winter. :)
