It is no longer Summer in Seattle. And it ended with a BANG, on Saturday, August 29.

Amazingly, it was well-predicted. In fact, when all of my weather sources converged to predict damaging winds, Jane and I made an emergency run up to Anacortes with our winter fenders and second set of docklines. Tho it felt strange to be getting ready for winter in the heat of an August day, it turned out to have been the right thing to do.
And it was a doozy. When it was over, half a million people were without power in the Seattle area, and two had been killed by falling timber.
But it brought rain. Glorious, glorious rain. We have had rain on every single day since the storm, including today (9/03). And *snap* just like that, it is now fall.
I guess I'll be getting the lawn mower out of mothballs...
