I frankly don’t know why Seattle gets a bad rep when it comes to weather. The weather is mild, rarely extremely hot or extremely cold. It rains, sure, but we seldom get a downpour; in fact, most days few of us even bother with umbrellas. We get snow in the city only about a couple of times a year, but we can drive less than an hour to a ski resort for our snow fix. Even when it is grey and cloudy, moody and broody is a good look on Seattle. I have fallen in love with this city and I am okay with our gloomy, bad weather days, they just make me appreciate our good days even more. And there are good, beautiful, clear, color-rich days. Don’t believe me? Check out some of my favorite photos taken during winter here.
