You killed a grass eater so your lawn will grow twice as fast. Steaks look great though. Just got a delivery from Omaha Steaks yesterday, maybe have time over the weekend to sear some beef myself. Mow the lawn another day. You got Chinese tomorrow.

Away w'ya.

Looks heavenly.


Normally, our winters here in the PacNW are rainy and dark; the sun sets at about 4:30, it's almost always overcast, and this fuels the usual jokes you hear about Seattle. To make up for it, the temps are generally very moderate, rarely getting below freezing, and snow might fall a day or two, and quickly get melted and washed away. This winter was extremely strange, with plenty of days of sunshine, much colder temps, and an almost absurd amount of snow--indeed, February was the snowiest month in the region for fifty years.

As we get into the spring, rain decreases, the days become increasingly long, we enter into a drought period, and for most of the summer the weather is beautiful--indeed, most here don't like to talk about it, since this brings more outsiders--particularly the hated Californians--moving here. Seattle is actually a more northern city than a western one--we live further north than 90% of Canadians. As a result, on the summer solstice, with Daylight Savings Time, you can easily read a newspaper outside at 9:30 at night. The moderate (normally) weather is due, so I understand, to the two mountain ranges that we live within, along with the Puget Sound, a very large water way that has lately been dubbed the Salish Sea.

At any rate, we tend to have very moderate weather, and often I have been able (or forced) to cut the lawn very early in the spring, up until the beginning of November. Naturally, this also allows us to cook outdoors.
