Yes, he was a native. Wait till I tell her the above. I think he was just lost in his own little world.

Good thing I just planted my melons,eggplant, peppers, squash and tomatoes, so they can stay in suspended animation for a while til it warms up.

Yup.

Looking like this year is going to be a repeat of last year - the year without a summer (pretty much anyway).

True story: My daughter was dating a guy from Seattle. On the day of the summer solstice, she said to him, "Today is the summer solstice". He answered, "What's that?" She said to me, well, they don't have seasons, so I guess they don't learn about the solstice. The guy was a college graduate, FWIW.
Well, to a native Seattlite, all summer soltice means is that a bunch of naked guys ride around on bikes.... so he probably was confused with connecting it to weather

Seattle is 4740' North Latitude and seems ( after reading all the posts) even worse than Paris which is 4850' North : has someone a rational explanation ?

Seattle is surrounded by COLD water, Lake Washington to the east and the Puget Sound on the west. The still snow covered Cascade mountains are on the east and the slightly still snow covered Olympic Mountains are just west. Lots of mountains, lots of water. And to the west the Pacific ocean is only maybe 100? miles away, so there is often a marine overcast and a dearth of warming sunshine.

But still I expected that there would be summer, sometime. Guess I was wrong.
