in seattle, spring starts early. certain bulb flowers (like crocuses) begin to sprout as early as february! it’s very uplifting to see them. 

but the thing is that here, it is generally 50 degrees and lightly raining off and on all day/night from october to june! so that’s the downside. 

the upside is that I don’t have to wear thick coats. yesterday I took a walk in the rain, and all I was wearing was a thin raincoat and t-shirt!

@KatyElle  We had just a slight dusting a couple times last winter with a little ice and everybody freaked out. There were a good number of accidents, and no wonder! No one was taught how to deal with winter weather. I have to drive DH back and forth from his work because he’s terrified to drive in it after totaling his car last winter.

I grew thinking I hated winter (in PA) but realized, I just don’t like the cold. Texas winter just messes me up. It jumps from hotish to coldish and it just makes everything ache. I feel like an old woman with everything clicking and popping and hurting. At least next year we’ll live somewhere with consistent weather.

I’m at work with my winter jacket on.  If I could type in gloves then I’d have those on too.  The past two days have been 10 degrees out and my car lost it’s heat.  To top it off I have Reynauds so my extremities are always cold due to poor blood circulation.  Can anyone say frostbite?

I keep reminding myself that in 8 months I’ll be sipping a pina colada on the beach somewhere…

@MapleMoose I used to work in an office that didn’t have heat. I wore fingerless gloves so I could type. hope this helps!
