Just a observation....
July and August weather here was warmer with more sunny days than Santa Barbara, where I used to live. I'm enjoying the cloudy days that have returned.

La Nina: 'I'm baaaaaack. Did you miss me?'

It appears La Nina had so much fun messing with our winter last year that it's decided to come back for an encore.

What I've found funny since moving from Vegas, is that what I thought would be tolerable here in Seattle, is almost too hot for me. When we are anywhere between 78-82 degrees over the last week or two, I'm complaining it's too hot, LOL! Which is funny coming from someone who lived in one of the hottest areas of the country. But even so, it feels better outside than inside on those days (no AC) and so I've found I've never spent more time outdoors at parks, walking, the beach, you name it. I can easily tolerate running in 50 degrees with light rain. It's the excessive heat or desert cold (40 or so ) with strong winds that does me in. But like you, I would spend litterally May through October inside avoiding the temps and then I'd get maybe a couple weeks in the spring or fall to enjoy it before it got too cold.
Ugh I am sooo Jealous!! The weather here has been in the sixties for a few days so it's been nice! But that won't last too long because winter is right around the corner.

Meterologists here have it pretty easy relatively speaking.

October thru June: cloudy drizzle and 50. One week where it snows.
late June thru late September: Sunny and 70s. One week where it gets above 80.

That hits about 90% of the weather here.

Now that the clouds have returned I'm struck by how sudden it is this year. Just two days ago it was sunny and awesome.

I'm not sure how you figure the terms La Nina and El Nino are "fuzzy science" ..... perhaps you are confusing them with "anthropogenic global warming", which Republicans believe is "fuzzy science" because large oil corporations have told them that. Actually, the overwhelming consensus of climate scientists around the world believe that there IS man-influenced global warming. You can't use the world "fuzzy" when there is a consensus in the scientific community about its valididity. Yes, maybe about 5% disagree that it's largely man-made, but no credentialed climatologist disagrees that there is global warming, or La Ninas, or El Ninos.

64 and cloudy in Bellingham. I just got back from a leisurely walk and I was sweating a bit the entire time. I'm ready for colder weather!

I can't wait for Seattle 'muggy' weather. It's 8pm and 85 degrees with 90% humidity here. I'm so jealous of all you of right now.
