They say there plus’s and minus’s to almost everything and this year that’s been the case with the weather here in the Pacific NW. I’ve lived in this area most of my life and I can only remember one year that was colder and wetter than this one. And, I don’t how many times I’ve heard others state the same thing.
It isn’t only that we had snow in March, which is almost unheard of, it’s that we went weeks with rain and dreary overcast days.
Okay, so the minus is this kind of weather gives us, or least some of us, the gloomys. A good non-word to describe my disposition. I didn’t quite hit cranky. It also delays getting out in the yard and forget about not wearing a jacket.
The plus’s? When the weather finally breaks out in sunshine no one appreciates it more than we do. And that’s including the flowers, and birds. The pictures from March and the ones from last week do a better job of saying it than I can.
