I went Christmas shopping in Seattle with my son yesterday.
I couldn't believe the rain and warm temps after a
foot of snow at Thanksgiving. Yesterday it was in
the 50's and a monsoon. Even the frogs were having trouble.
I am sure I saw one trying the backstroke.
Today they are worried about the rivers flooding here in
western Washington because of the rain and the
snow melt in the mountains.
That should really get the frogs hopping!
We really had a great time and I just about
finished my shopping. Did a lot of walking
and enjoying the sites and sounds.
They were having the "Pathway of Light" last night
at Greenlake with paper luminaries (5,000 candles) all the way
around the lake (3.1 miles).
( Thank you Friends of Greenlake for photo )A lot of the lanterns burned out
because of the rain but a lot of the walkers and their pets
were lit up with Christmas lights. So festive and bright!
When I got home it was late and all I wanted
was a warm shower but it was occupied....
They say more rain for the next 5 days....!
