As we prepared to land in Seattle on Tuesday at just past noon, one of the attendants announced, “Welcome to Seattle. At the moment, it is 39 degrees.”
Thirty-nine degrees? Hey, it’s noon. You’ve got to be kidding. Nope, they weren’t kidding, but I was prepared. Before leaving Lake Havasu (where it probably is 80 degrees today) I had checked the forecast for weather in Seattle, and expected it to be chilly and raining and since I’m on the cold-natured side, I had brought a long wool coat.
But look! All over town are spectacular trees including these flowering Japanese Cherry trees. We drove around a little yesterday and stopped once in the town of Kirkland to look across Lake Washington to the skyline of Seattle.
