Every time you do a YPW or pitbulls post from now on, I'm going to reply with a link to some wasted space on Slog where you bitched about the weather. I realize that YPW and pitbull posts have the intent, if questionably effective, of informing people about growing problems in society. You can't do shit about the weather. And if you can't change it, shut up.

The squirrel's been non-stop eating the shit out of those helicopter seed things in the tree for the last five days. Consider me Steve Pooled.

you gotta be willing to walk, crawl, scramble, and probably climb over some fallen trees, g'z.

Get high, then go higher

It better? Or what? How much time without weather whining does it buy us if you get your goddamn snow?

When did recycling south park lines become so cliche?

Buy your season's pass now so we can get some friggin red tomatoes around here! Plus, pitbulls LOVE snow! They're such playful dogs!

@11 - especially if you leave them on the hill while you get drunk in a bar ...

I have abandoned my opposing position re: Dan bitching about the weather and am now fully on board the "fuck this summer" boat. I'm at work in a SWEATER in the last week of summer. THIS IS NOT RIGHT. SAD isn't supposed to set in for me until February, and it's coming six months early this year, apparently.

Boo, hiss, weather gods!

Thank god for giant windows at work or I'd have SAD already.

this entire year has been shit, so why are you surprised? summer has another month to go, so suck it up & take advantage of the sun we do get.

bright side: the glaciers will advance this year.

If it keeps up like this I'm thinking tornadoes next month and earthquakes by January. You'll be able to lavaboard down the slopes of Rainier come springtime.

This is summer? Really? I thought we just went from Spring right into Fall this year.

BTW, funny how the weather people on TV call unusually cold weather through the end of July "a late spring pattern" but after August 1 it becomes "an early fall pattern". I always wondered how they determined the cut off for that.

We just had an earthquake up in BC, @17.

Lavaboarding Rainier! Let's roll!

Okay, it's a little humid, but maybe Iowa ain't so bad. At least it's sunny. Thanks for making me feel a little less homesick. I hate the weather in Seattle.

All I can say is, this Saturday better be freakin' sunny. I got plans. PLANS, YOU HEAR ME?!

It sure feels and looks like early October.

No, Dan, no! I live in the mts and I am not ready for the snow yet. It has only been 4 months since there was snow on the ground outside and you just jinxed us!
