Greetings from Seattle. No, actually, greetings from the District of Columbia, but we've had nearly 40 consecutive days of rain, and I'm starting to wonder if we accidentally flew back from London to the wrong Washington.
It's June, but my children are in school for nearly another month. This is because the county added several days to the school year to compensate for all the snow days when schools were closed last winter. I guess it's not such a terrible thing for them to be indoors, given that the weather hasn't permitted much frolicking outside lately, anyway.
I'm not really complaining. We had nine days of perfect weather when we were in Europe, and I plan to ask the powers that be for restricted daytime precipitation when we drive across the U.S. next month to the Grand Canyon, L.A. and the other Washington to see relatives in Seattle. But I'm starting to wonder whether people can mildew.
