The Westering Hills

Time lapse in blogland

Has everyone noticed a significant decline not only in the amount of postings in blogworld, but also the amount of commenting? I know I haven’t done much of either lately and I’ve heard the same sentiment from others. Must be something out there causing this collective lull. Don’t look at me, I don’t know!

Since my last entry, I’ve had a bad back, bad moods, and a disgruntled outlook on life. I almost never do this, but as far as the last two go, I am almost certain I can, in part, blame the weather. It’s June-uary here in the Puget Sound region, as the wags are calling it—around 50 degrees during the day, dipping down into the low 40s at night, lots of rain, very little sunshine, SNOW in the mountains last night, and a wind/rainstorm yesterday that hasn’t been seen in these here parts since 1938. DAMMIT. It’s seriously getting everyone down, especially after our Very Snowy For Seattle Winter.

I’m making tuna salad for tomorrow’s lunch and crawling into bed. Goodnight.

    I agree on all counts. When can I start kayaking again, huh?! Stoopid weather! Ugh!

    Word. The weather has been shite. In many ways, it’s basically been winter for coming on eight months, so I hear you. It’s depressing. The soul needs sun on the skin.

    Better than the 95 F plus degree weather we’ve been having here, and it goes without saying that humidity is this heat’s sidekick here in the NE. Working outside in this? Sucks. It cooks your brain. Seriously, it really does!

    That being said, I do understand that chilly cloudiness isn’t wonderful either. This is where I vote for a world that is always between 50 and 75 degrees F, with low humidity. Which would kill off all the rainforests, but we’re doing that anyway, so what the heck?

    Indeed.

    Want to trade weather? It’s been a sweltering 90+ degrees here for the last week, and I’m melting. I like your weather better than mine pretty much year-round.

    It was over 100 here a few days ago. The tuna salad sounds wonderful! I would love some!

    Hey, you could write about that one thing! No one’s writing about that.
