Waiting for Spring…

I am little bird who has lived in the Seattle-area my entire life and I have heard many jokes about Seattle's rain. The best way to describe the weather in the Seattle area is "rain and drain" -- we have either a rain day or a drain day. If you want to see what all this rain is good for, check out my Skagit Valley Tulips page. Also, visit my Spring page for some interesting photos of some of not so typical weather.
We had some snow showers yesterday so while I am wondering if it is Spring yet, I hope you enjoy these jokes..... 

What do you call two straight days of rain in Seattle?
A weekend.

It only rains twice a year in Seattle:
August through April and May through July.

What does daylight-saving time mean in Seattle?
An extra hour of rain.

What's the definition of a Seattle optimist?
A guy with a sun visor on his rain hat.

What did the Seattle native say to the Pillsbury Doughboy?
Nice tan.

"I can't believe it," said the tourist. "I've been here an entire week and it's done nothing but rain. When do you have summer here?"
"Well, that's hard to say," replied the local. "Last year, it was on a Wednesday."

A curious fellow died one day and found himself in limbo waiting in a long, long line for judgment. As he stood there, he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the gates of heaven. Others were led over to Satan, who threw them into a lake of fire. Every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss him or her to one side.
After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the better of him. He strolled over and tapped Old Nick on the shoulder.
"Excuse me, there, Your Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for judgment, and I couldn't help wondering why you are tossing some people aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?"
"Ah," Satan said with a grin. "Those are Seattle-ites. I'm letting them dry out so they'll burn."

Meteorological experts predicted a massive flood that would destroy the world. The pope went on worldwide TV and said, "This is punishment from God. Prepare to meet your maker." The president went on TV and announced, "Our scientist have done all they can. The end is near." The mayor of Seattle came on and said, "Due to inclement weather, this year's Seafair Parade will be moved to the top of Queen Anne Hill."

The other day a newcomer to Seattle arrives on a rainy day. He gets up the next day and it's raining. It also rains the day after that, and the day after that. He comes out and sees me and asks out of despair, "Hey kid, does it ever stop raining around here?" Isn't he funny??? How would I know…and I am also mad that somebody is taking pictures of me.

Welcome to my beautiful world of“Seattle”! Hey, We have lots of rainy days, but a lot of them are just drizzly rain.  With snow capped mountains, evergreen trees, big lakes and big vistas, I believe that this is the most beautiful place on earth. And while I acknowledge a certain amount of native bias in my opinion, any nature lover would admit that Washington is one of the world's most scenic places.


  1. Snow at this time of the year , unbeleivable. yes, I absolutly agree with you..I have had the best of times over there.I was there only for a period of 2 years, but simply love that place.
