Hey, I can appreciate the comments about unpredictable weather! I live in
Oklahoma after all. However, if you (like me) have never been to the
Northwest, you could make some really bad assumptions about springtime and
be left chilly! Anyway, here's a really helpful message sent by Brenda
about the weather in Seattle. (I think I'll pack a sweater or two and
forget the shorts. If Seattle greets me with rain, I'll enjoy a sight that my
state hasn't seen enough of.)
