Nice Weather, Smart Cover

Beautiful here lately.
Fluffy Clouds Over West Seattle Stadium
Emily spotted these fluffy clouds (rare around here) in West Seattle recently, and I enjoyed the view of the Cascades from Louisa Boren Park:

The Times has also been praising our spring weather in a recent story:

SPRING comes early to Seattle and lasts long. By the end of February, the rains relent and pastel shades of plum and narcissus initiate a progression of color and scent that lasts months. But new flora is not the only thing popping out of the ground in Seattle these days. Seemingly overnight, whole swatches of downtown and close-in neighborhoods — notably South Lake Union and the Pike-Pine Corridor — have transformed themselves into vibrant enclaves of restaurants, bars and galleries.

They've featured Seattle before, (and I mentioned it then too), but this one really reminded me that I just love living here.

Favorite spots like Volunteer Park, Oddfellows, and Elliott Bay Books (Huzzah for Capitol Hill!), and a nice list of places we need to see, like Sitka & Spruce, the Center for Wooden Boats, and the Museum of History and Industry.

Hope you can visit soon, reader!

Okay, here's a bonus video that I just can't like enough:

Our iPad is working great, but only the new one has this cover...

Well, reader, I'd better get to work. Basketball coming up this evening! Rock Chalk!


  1. Go ahead, rub it in! You may just get more visitors than you bargained for...

    But seriously, I'm so glad you and Emily live in such a wonderful place! (I just wish it were closer.)

  2. Ha! Well, I really do hope you all visit soon!
