Right Now

For those who don’t know me, I live in Eastern Washington. Contrary to popular belief, it’s really dry. When you think of Seattle weather, think of the opposite. It’s more like a desert.

I tell you that to tell you this: so far this late spring, it’s been raining just about every day. And when it hasn’t rained, it’s been cold. It’s been kind of dreary and not as comfortable and fun as it should be.

Today, though, the sun came out. It was warm, it was pretty. I mowed the lawn and went outside. It was happy and everything I expect out of this time of year, and such a beautiful and wonderful turnaround from recent days. It made me happy.

I tell you that to tell you this: today’s weather made me think of the Rangers’ season lately.
