Seattle's Secret
Lileks wrote tonight
Last May was one of the wettest on record, and it had the effect of depressing everyone’s mood. You were either cranky or morose. I don’t know how people in Seattle do it. I don’t know why they don’t have bulldozers trolling the streets to scoop up the bodies of people who’ve leaped from tall buildings. A cold May is like getting your leave cancelled and your pay cut. But a good June makes you forget everything.
Having just escaped from his hometown back to mine, perhaps I shouldn't tell him that I spent a good portion of today laying on freshly cut grass overlooking the Puget Sound as the bright sun warmed me up and without a cloud in the sky. The reason no one in Seattle leaps from tall buildings during the rainy months is that when we do get summer, it's the most beautiful thing anywhere.
Agree, disagree, have more information on the topic? Please, feel free to leave a comment. No profanity!
