Every day in December has been below normal for temps, except today which is above normal. That's a little strange, but what is weird is that we've had NO RAIN! Come on! This is the Pacific Northwest, we are supposed to look like drowning rats all winter long. We develop webbing between our toes. Moss is a normal covering on everything. We tied with Death Valley for rain amounts this month. easy child came home from Minnesota yesterday and said that there was no snow on the ground when he left. Normally, we worry that he won't be able to get the to airport because of the snow storms. What is going on??? And just how bad will the weather be when winter does show up? I feel like I'm waiting for a shoe to drop...heck, a whole laundry basket of shoes to drop!
