Yesterday I accompanied Cal's class on a field trip to a pumpkin patch. In order to fit everything in I wanted to accomplish, I started my day with a run in the dark and in a heavy rain before school (I found it surprisingly peaceful and invigorating). Despite Seattle's reputation, the rain here tends to be on the misty side and it rarely rains all day. This field trip ended up being just wet and cold and not-so-fun for anyone. I'm glad we had already made a family trip to a pumpkin patch. More typical of this city, the rain stopped by the time we got back to school and the sky was blue when I returned home from school. Later in the evening I heard thunder. We had such a dry summer, I'm still a bit surprised when I hear it on the roof as I'm falling asleep.
