Cold

Something strange happened tonight. This morning, it was a pretty typical Seattle morning: raining, slightly cool, and grey. Then, around 7:00, a fog swept in, in just a few minutes' time, and within a couple more hours, it became cold.

I guess the difference was only ten degrees, from upper 40s to upper 30s, but it seemed like a more dramatic change, perhaps due to the sudden 98% humidity.

I'm already beginning to lose my tolerance for extreme temperatures, after a year and a half. It's 20 in Lincoln right now, and here it's above freezing and I still think it's cold. It hasn't been that long since I dealt with the fun of below-zero temperatures.
