Weather has been a lifelong passion for me; while my husband and 4 kids all in college and beyond, one now married, have patiently gone along with me!

Wow, it has been quite awhile since I have been by here! But, I am back home (have been for almost a week) and lots has happened. We made our trek across the country! We drove just under 3,000 miles from Seattle to Maryland. It went fine and was quite enjoyable. It took us six days to reach Maryland. We stopped at a few places but mostly just traveled onward. The car was tiny and with four of us in it, plus quite limited luggage and th...

Today is a good day to write about the next phase of things, as it is a very different day here than we have had in a long while. A heavy overcast is overhead, and it really rained during the night. In about six hours we received .80” rain. Only two days ago it was 99 degrees here. Yesterday dropped to 82 (only because the sun broke out for awhile in the afternoon, the rest of the day was cooler than that and cloudy) and then that rai...

A HOT day is forecast here for us today. It could end up in the middle 90’s. It is starting out on track for that forecast. The low this morning has only been 61 – I think without checking that last night was maybe the warmest of the year. The sunrise is through a filter of haze (smoke?) that is making the early sun a blood red color, which also can portend the “flames” of a hot day ahead.
Another busy weekend comple...

Happy Summer Solstice! Ahhh, the first day of summer, and the longest day of the year too! There are sure a lot of months when we wish for this day. It was a nice one for us – sunny under a partially filtered sky and a high of 76. Unfortunately, other than to water my garden, I wasn’t out in it very much.
An update on my daughter’s knee: it has been diagnosed as a dislocated knee cap. No surgery for now, but a few weeks...

Here are a couple more rhododendron blossom photos from my yard showing two different colors - white and a lovely purple shade. I am not sure how well the purple will translate to all of your computer screens, but in real life it is a real pretty shade and probably my favorite. But all of them are very nice. May is rhododendron month here in western Washington. It is our state flower and I think this one is a great pick that someone in the...
