What a difference a few days can make! After the first couple weeks of January were chilly with an average temperature near the freezing point, the third week of January in Seattle responded with an average temperature almost 12 degrees warmer…just below 44 degrees. And did it feel a little soggy? Seattle received half of its normal January rainfall in just two days last week. Despite the change of weather, we still managed some sunrises and sunsets for the ages at Green Lake as I can attest to this past Sunday. So, what’s ahead? A change to somewhat drier (but not as chilly as early January) conditions over the next few days – good weather for some exercise lakeside.
