April Showers

Weather here in Seattle can be somewhat strange. Today started out as one of those rainy, steel grey type days thick with gloom. Later the clouds dissipated into glorious spring sunshine and brilliant blue skies. Then as the day ended, the clouds rolled in again and the rain returned. And tonight there's a bit of a chill in the air but the smell is lovely. I love the smell of evergreens after a rainfall and the sound of cars swishing by on the wet roads.

Driving in the afternoon has its benefits. Now I can stay up later and enjoy the solitude of evening, instead of passing out at 9 pm back when I was waking up at the ungodly hour of 4:30 am. It's also nice to be able to enjoy a spot of cognac or glass of port before retiring.

And I'm sure this info is just positively exciting for you, dear reader. Perhaps you were expecting some deep insight into politics or something. Well I'm a bit tired of ranting for the moment. It's a tough thing being a solitary voice in the wilderness that is Amerika. There are others who seem to have boundless energy in discussing politics.

I need a break though. Indeed, finding solace is vital on nights like these when the weasels start gathering 'round. The only thing one can do is turn on some music, drink a bit of wine and read some stories about Roy Orbison wrapped up in clingfilm. Thanks to bluejoh for that link. I haven't had a chuckle like that for quite some time. Absurdities like that could only come from the other side of the Atlantic.

And here's some music for you by Luna. It's what I'm currently listening to. Maybe you'll like it too.
