April comes around every year, promising Spring, which I keep thinking means sun, puffy white clouds and perfect hiking weather. Nope. It’s like every year I have amnesia – because April in Seattle is ALWAYS full of rain. Showers, sprinklings, pouring, even hail…if it’s wet and it falls from the sky it’s going to happen in April. So my advice if you are ever planning to visit the beautiful city of Seattle: Don’t come in April! Sunny days are right around the corner…

…but until then, I’ll be carrying around my umbrella. Many Seattleites say you tell somebody is a tourist if they are carrying an umbrella, because no true Seattle local would ever waste their strength carrying the silly thing. No – locals are hardcore, Northface-shell-wearing rain lovers who tromp through puddles in REI hiking boots and aren’t bothered by sopping wet jeans. They wouldn’t dare be caught dead standing under the portable shelter.

Well, let me play the role of myth-buster for you. LOTS of Seattleites carry umbrellas. Why? Because we don’t always want to wear raincoats! Sometimes, we want to wear a little bomber jacket with faux leather sleeves instead…
