WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Islands in the fog, after record rainfall

Once the rain stopped this evening, fog started seeping over nearby islands. Above, that’s Bainbridge Island in David Hutchinson‘s photo from Alki; below, our peek view of Vashon Island from the Gatewood/Fauntleroy line:

More rain might be on the way, but we’ve already set a June 13th record – .68 of an inch measured at Sea-Tac, breaking the old half-inch record set in 1946.

P.S. Summer is exactly one week away – the solstice moment is 8:31 pm next Sunday (June 20th).

    Taken last evening from my friend’s house above Beach Drive/Alki Point, where we were having our sons’ high school graduation party.

    It looks like ‘mizzle’, according to the Brits. (intense mist+drizzle)

      Also a lovely paint colour from Farrow & Ball.

    David – I’d LOVE to get a print of that beautiful, eerie picture for our home. If you have a website or any information on how one could be obtained, please let me know. You can also email me at mrsjohnsonk at gmail dot com.

    Great photos, all.  Sure captured the end of our rainstorm.  Here in White Center we got .98 inch of rain even beating out Sea-Tac’s record!

    I LOVE the ferry photo by David Hutchinson. David, do you have a website? I googled and found a David Hutchinson photo site but not sure if that’s you. Would love to know where i can purchase this! Thank you.

    Our uniquely beautiful PNW weather is something to celebrate.  I’ll take fog and mizzle over sun and sand any day!

      Not me, I’ll take the Sun and sand in every crevice any day! But when it’s Sunny here I’ll take that too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
