Cooling Off

Having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave as the Irving Berlin song goes. Here in Seattle, a heat wave constitutes highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. And we’ve been getting lots of that recently, with a big glowing yellow orb being predominantly visible in the clear blue sky.  


But Seattleites, probably still overdosing on Vitamin D, and more accustomed to having grey clouds and rain, are wondering why they have had so many continues days of bright sunshine.  Just don’t stare, Seattle. It’s not good for your eyes, I warn you. 


At least the kids know best how to cool off – and it doesn’t involve multiple ice bucket challenges. If they’re not heading for the International Fountain at the Seattle Center (see Here Comes Summer), then, like today’s photo, you can find them cooling off at the newish water spray path attraction at Lake Union.
