The 06/28/13 Joy Jar

28 Jun

Hot weather in Seattle is reletive in comparison to the rest of the country. We don’t have the 110+ weather of las Vegas or Phoenix, but 88 in Seattle makes folk start to complain. Today was the first hot day in Seattle and there promises to be, according to the weather minds, several more days to follow. Even hot and uncomfortable days have their place, they make one appreciate those days when it is not too cold, not too warm, not too rainy, and not too cloudy. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ are hot summer days which make one appreciate perfect temperature days.

A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
St. Francis of Assisi

Ada Louise Huxtable

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.
