A Clear Sunny Day in Seattle by The Elephant's Child

Blue skies, thin white clouds barely there down towards the horizon. An unimpressive sky, mostly thin pale blue where there aren’t definite clouds and there aren’t many of those. Not impressive, but O.K.. Looking out my second story window it’s just pale blue fading into white all over. Well. could be a lot worse1 Nobody is going outside to sit and enjoy the sunshine. Just definitely not that kind of day. Maybe next week. Seattle is, a I have mentioned before, a “moist” city. Major navigable river to the Pacific Ocean, lots of ocean-going shipping. Seattle sits on a large saltwater sound. on the west side and on the east side is a major freshwater lake.To the East, the land rises up to the Cascade Range, a major mountain range separating the coast from the interior farming and ranching land. So Seattle is a major port for the West Coast of America, and an important one.

Far to the South, it’s still a little smoky, but not nearly as much as it was last week. I don’t know if there’s enough sunshine out there to draw people out to enjoy the sun, but at least it’s not raining! Lots of fires in people’s fireplaces. A fire in the fireplace can be really comforting on a damp cloudy day, It;s not the kind of day that draws one outside at all. That will have to wait a little longer.
