Welcome Back Gray Skies: Just in Time!

It is a nice gray skies here in Seattle (actually I live in a ghetto suburb next to the garbage dump and local meth lab) and we seem to be out of our deep freeze. My pond hasn’t quite defrosted but we will have rain and some windstorms this weekend. This weekend is going to be a sports weekend for me. I have the Pub Night (Guy’s Night Out) to the local Seattle Thunderbird hockey game on Friday night, then the University of Washington Husky Football game on Saturday evening (kick off at 7:30 pm), and finally a Seattle Seahawks game on Sunday. Luckily, Sunday will a “stay at home day and watch the game” event. I like the comfort of my living room with the family around. The old living room is warmer and the food and drinks are cheaper. Plus my wife is an awesome cook so we usually get a stellar meal out of the deal.

Any bring plans for you guys out in blogger land? Any patios to build, leaves to rake?

The Big Freeze in Seattle (but we have sunshine)

We have had a bit of a freeze here in the Pacific Northwest. Portland was lucky (or unlucky) enough to get some snow while here in the Seattle area we have had freezing temperatures and blue skies. Yes, blue skies with sunshine! Oh, and we can see Mt. Rainier too! I know, pretty exciting huh?

The nice part about the cold temperatures is the fact you can stay inside and enjoy the gas fireplace. Heck, if you don’t have one of those, burn a few nice candles. Maybe some nice pumpkin spice ones to put you in the fall holiday mood….drink some hot buttered rum…relax…

So remember:
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
