Hot in Seattle!

We live in Texas! Hot Texas. There's two seasons in Texas--hot and hotter. One of the things we were looking forward to while on our long roadtrip was some cooler weather!
So what do you think we found in Seattle?????

Nope, not cool weather!
As you can see from the headlines of The Seattle Times, all we had for the 5 days we were there was hot hot hot weather!
And we found out. . . there's not that many businesses with air conditioning! Most restaurants and businesses near Pike Place have no air conditioning--uggggggg. Lots of open windows and ceiling fans, which would be GREAT if the weather was nice and cool and breezy but it wasn't.
It was HOT, no breeze, and rather humid.
And of course, we walked to most attractions or took the monorail--oh my gosh, it was like taking a bath in your clothes.

I never thought I would ever say this--TAKE ME BACK TO SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS!!!!!!
At least in San Antonio nearly EVERYTHING has air conditioning.

Home improvement stores were doing a "bang up" job because they were selling window air conditioning units like hot cakes! The weather in Seattle didn't cool down until AFTER we boarded our cruise ship for Alaska--GREAT, JUST GREAT!!!!!!
