Diary of a Seattle Resident

August 23rd.
Just moved to Seattle. Lovely weather, about 75 degrees, no clouds, beautiful trees and mountains, especially Mt. Rainier. Puget Sound...how cool is that. I wonder how everything stays so green even in the summer?? People here are sure lucky to have such a beautiful outdoors to play in. Only 50 miles to the mountains and 70 to the sea. I love it here.

August 25th.
Drove out to the mountains yesterday. It took 2.5 hours just to get to the top of the pass? I wonder why traffic was so heavy? It was barely moving. When I got to the other side it was even slower because of road construction. Sure was pretty though, another beautiful day, even though I spent the better part of it in the car. Next time I'll make sure to leave earlier so I can miss the traffic. Also remember not to stop in North Bend for gas it took like an hour??

August 26th.
What happened to the nice weather? Gosh it's cold! only about 54 degrees, yesterday it was 84. These clouds are very low and grey it sure looks like its going to rain I was going to wash the car and mow the lawn but I better not if it's going to rain.

August 27th.
Weather is the same as yesterday. Very grey and depressing but it's not raining so I'll wash the car and mow the lawn today. The weatherman says it's going to be sunny tomorrow. I think I'll play some golf.

August 28th.
Pouring down rain. Cold. Kind of pissed off because I spent 4.5 hours washing and waxing my black car because the weatherman said it was going to be sunny today. Not to mention I shelled out $150.00 to play this fancy golf course and it poured down rain the whole time. Boy the weatherman kind of missed that one. I'll bet he feels dumb.

September 28th.
Geez, except for those few days at the beginning of September, it's rained almost every day. Must be the rainy season in Seattle. Oh well, it keeps the reservoirs full and the trees green. Looking forward to those crisp clear fall days and football season!

October 31st.
Halloween. Cold as hell and raining. Poor kids, that's not much fun trick or treating in that weather. All their little costumes getting ruined. The weatherman said it was going to be clear and crisp for the trick or treaters?? This guy seems to be wrong alot in his forecasts. He's probably not a weatherman at all. His Dad must be some big wig and got him the job. I'll going to watch another station with a real weatherman.

November 1st.
At home with my knee elevated. Doctors orders. Pulled the ligaments really bad chasing down some little bastards that smashed my pumpkins. Boy a wooden deck with Thompson's watersealer on it is slicker than snot when it's wet. Still raining. My knee is killing me. I can still hear those kids laughing.

November 28th.
Does it rain every freaking day here?! It sure seems like it. You wanna know cold? Try 40 degrees with rain being blown into you at 15 miles an hour. Burr! People always talk about the beautiful mountains here. Well I haven't seen them in at least a month. And why are people so afraid of driving in the rain?! Let's go! The forecast calls for some sun though so I'll get some yard work done this weekend.

November 30th.
Rained all weekend but now its sunny ...Allright!... Finally! Sure feels good to feel the sun on your face again. Now I remember why I like this place so much. It's almost December and it's 54 degrees and sunny. I think I'll wash the car. Weatherman says this high pressure system should stay with us for awhile and push this system well to the north of us.

December 1st.
F#*)@$& raining again. I just washed the F#*)@$& car! What is the deal with these weathermen. They're wrong every F#*)@$& time! They are blaming offshore flow for kicking this system a little south and into our region. Whatever. Pardon my French but F#*)@$& the Rain!

December 25th.
Ho! Ho! Ho! It's F#*)@$& raining again. Merry F#*)@$& Christmas.

February 1st.
Ha Ha! It's day 62 of constant rain. I threw my milkshake at some son-of-a-bitch on the freeway this morning. Cut me off will you? Doubt it. Too bad it's raining because it cleaned the milkshake off his car. Oh well he got the message. Can't let people mess with you on the road. You better take your openings when you can or they will walk all over you. Why do people drive so slow in the rain! What are they afraid of? It rains here every day!, how are you supposed to enjoy the beautiful outdoors?
