    there are like 200 separate wildfires currently occurring in British Columbia and Eastern Washington and the smoke haze is so fucking bad here, it's just like a fug of grey lung-clogging misery has settled over Puget Sound and there will be no escape until the coastal wind decides to come back and my body does not like this one bit

    Not quiiiite as bad over here, I think the Cascades might be protecting us from the worst of what the coast is getting. But it was definitely hazy getting up this morning.
  3. It's been hazy here for a few days now. I hope all of you in Canada and eastern Washington are safe, and also will stop being on fire soon.

    Well the state didnt burn down last year, so I guess we have to make up for it this year.

    I'm reviving this thread because it was 60 degrees yesterday when I didn't have to go to work and today when I do, it's snowing.

    Corollary to the above: I have to basically get completely redressed once I get to school because 12 deg F means I wear about 6 layers of clothing and that's not sustainable once you get indoors

    Meanwhile we're having the quintessential Dutch autumn with lots and lots and lots of rain.

    And everything is dark now when I go home :( Really annoying because it feels like car headlights get brighter every year.

    England actually does this all the time when there's loads of rain. Their drainage system seems ill prepared for loads of rain all of a sudden, even though they are a country that has lots of it :P

    yeah i've noticed that if it actually rains like, hard, at all, everyone seems very shocked and surprised despite the fact that it rains constantly. a country designed to withstand a mild, steady drizzle and absolutely no weather besides that...

    given an unusually rainy autumn/winter, half the county is generally underwater by the end of it
    there's generally some drama about insurance, or lack of it, or politicians being insensitive, but generally everyone just sort of continues on regardless

    It dumped snow down on us, and then we got stuck behind a snowplow doing 40 the whole way to work. As far as I could tell, dude wasn't actually getting much off the road either; there wasn't much down, where he was plowing.

    got some snow but not enough to shut down roadwork, so I get to stand on the side of the road in 15-27 degree F weather all day tomorrow :toot:

    right?? it's a real pain especially bc my daily commute four days a week involves driving on a very very winding road in rush hour traffic and that + rain + dark + headlights is, a lot
    it's rainy and overcast here but it's not Proper Cold, which is... i mean, i don't mind not being freezing, but on some level it feels like it should actually be chilly at this point, instead of the exhausting "very cold--VERY cold--oh it's warmish again and sunny--it's rainy now--it's REAL rainy now but still warmish--ohp, it's cold again--" merry-go-round.
