I have lived in many different parts of our country.... Illinois, Virginia, North Carolina, Vermont, Minnesota, Michigan....and now we live in the Pacific Northwest.
My first thought when about the possibility of living here was, "But it rains there - a lot."
It's true. For much of the year, we are under cloud cover which is often accompanied by wet stuff falling down.
But summertime is glorious ~ three months of sun, with very little rain.
It seems summer has finally arrived (although today is cloudy and tomorrow's forecast calls for rain). I'm savoring every moment the sun shines.
These photos were taken yesterday, while picnicking in a nearby park.
