Shorts in a Rain Storm?

Shorts in a rain storm? Typical Seattle? You bet. Seattle folks can seem pretty casual about rain sometimes, like this guy on Capitol Hill. This storm hasn't been really cold, just blustery with a lot of thunder and lightning and hail. Toward the end of the month we'll be putting our winter tires on our vehicles and pulling out the wooly jumpers, Northface jackets, scarves, hats, gloves, and thick jeans. But right now, it is more beautiful than bleak. The lovely fallen leaves are beginning to pile up now, and if you'd care to see the hail piled up in my garden yesterday, just click More Seattle Stuff.

For the time being the colours are beautiful!

I always say that skin is easier to dry than jeans or slacks! :D

Love the golden color of your autumn leaves.

I'm already wearing my woolen socks.

And sometimes even with shoes.

Fun shot. Love seeing the fallen leaves in all their glory. My kids always wore shorts years round in Seattle. Snow & all! Hardy people I say :D
Happy weekend to you ~

Wonderful perspective here. In Vermont we see people in shorts walking beside people in parkas. To each his own.

Yeah, I scratch my head and pull my jacket closer when I see people wearing shorts in these conditions. We have a mail carrier who wears shorts pretty much year around. Only when it snows does he make an exception. Nice low angle image, Kim.

Seriously, I live were we measure our snow in feet and there are folks who wear shorts all year 'round. What's so odd about shots in the rain?

WE have had awful rain and storms for what seems like months but we've had some fine weather lately. All I had on for my walk today was a long sleeved tee shirt. Ahhhh. Hope you , Chuck and W had a chance to get together. Hate I missed that. What fun!!! Here's to sunnier skies in Seattle.

Thanks very much for your kind comments! Fun to learn we are not the only community which could feature in a quirky Pemco Insurance ad. :-)
