Here There and Everywhere

Pacific Northwest Day

Brrrr. .. .. Weather Underground: Kuwait tells me it’s 54 F / 12 C out this morning, but from my window all I can see is a lot of fog, whitecaps on the waves, and a steady cool breeze blowing. Am in in Kuwait? Or am I back in Seattle? This is a very Seattle kind of day.

A friend and I went to lunch yesterday, sat outside in a beautiful garden area eating mezze and grill . . . the weather was perfect. Warm, sunny, without being hot. It’s such joy to be able to eat outside, in the fresh air. Later in the day, I needed a jacket, and this morning . . . well, maybe the sun will burn some of the fog off and we will have another gorgeous day.

I turned the air conditioning off back in November – I want to see how long we can go before we have to turn it back on again. I want a beautiful LOOOOONNNGGG Spring.

High expected of 68 F / 20 C – yep, that’s spring, sometimes even summer, in Seattle.

Mom called last night – she says Seattle is very very cold this winter, lots of snow, and very very cold. She has gone back to her exercise classes now, to get stronger for some trips she has coming up. She tries to keep busy. She misses my dad.

  1. i was shocked by how much there was last night and this morning. I am looking outside my office window and i cant see further than a few hundred meters. But i love it, reminds me of lebanon just as much as it reminds u of Seattle

  2. It is just like Lebanon! This morning has been grey and rainy, with patches of clear grey sky. The sea is a beautiful dark blue, with a deep teal streak near the shore.

    I thought of Seattle this morning as well. So tough having parts of my hearts attached to so many cities!

  3. The sea here is almost yellow today! Oh no! Wait! That’s all the sand on my windows. . . or maybe the reflection of sand on the water . . . whatever, there is a lot of sand. And you can barely see the water. I don’t know if it is fog or smog or fog and sandstorm. And in places, there is a very bad smell, too.

    How funny. I never think of rain in Lebanon, or fog, only sunny days. 🙂
