Seattle Seasons

For those of you in the rest of the world, I thought it might be useful to explain the seasons here in Seattle.

Since they are cyclical, it really doesn't matter where we enter the cycle of the seasons.  So arbitrarily, I choose Summer as the entry point (because it is my favorite):


  • July
  • August
  • September


  • October


(such as it is in Seattle anyway)
  • November
  • December
  • January


  • February


Where every day is 10 degrees below average
  • March
  • April
  • May
  • June
So, here we are in the second month of Woebegone, with near-record low temperatures and having just come thru a major winter storm, with another bearing down on us for tomorrow. Quite a come-down after Spring. But we Seattlites are tough and are used to it.


Dateline Thursday, April 8:  Update!
There is snow on the ground on the higher hills in Seattle this morning.

It *is* April, isn't it?

Personally I'd edit that list such that November and December were added to Woebegone since we're always hoping for snow, but only get rain, and move February into Winter.

Three seasons: Summer = July 10th-ish thru October 10th-ish; Winter = December 21-ish - February; Woebegone = the other 6 months.
