Thanks to Barry for the sunset view above, and to Chad for the one below. The spectacular-sunset streak may not last too much longer, if the newest forecast is accurate – it’s predicting a string of cloudy days, starting shortly.
P.S. The National Weather Service offers this observation re: our rainlessness (sorry, the caps are theirs):
THE RECORD FOR THE LEAST NUMBER OF DAYS OF MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION FOR THE AUGUST 1ST TO SEPTEMBER 30TH TIME FRAME FOR SEATTLE IS 4 DAYS SET IN 1974. SO FAR THIS YEAR WE HAVE HAD ONLY 2 DAYS. THE RECORD FOR THE DRIEST AUGUST 1ST TO SEPTEMBER 30TH ON RECORD FOR SEATTLE IS 0.19 INCHES SET IN 1993. CURRENTLY THERE HAS ONLY BEEN 0.02 INCHES OF RAIN SINCE AUGUST 1ST. BOTH OF THESE RECORDS INCLUDE THE FEDERAL BUILDING RECORDS WHICH GO BACK TO 1891.
