Just How Cold Was it? -- Wednesday, January 25, 2017

This morning, February 17, I sit at my kitchen table in Houston sipping a cup of hot coffee, and feel thankful for the air conditioner which runs 24/7.  What a difference a four hour flight makes!

I recall the temp in Seattle a couple of weeks ago, when it warmed up to the 40s.  We enjoyed many sunny days and some rain or mist on other days.  To quote a good friend who lives there, "There is no bad WX in Seattle, only inappropriate clothing."

I agree, and now go back in time to Wednesday, January 25.

Vicki tells me about the bar tending class, whose limited seating is sold out.  She offers to give her ticket to Herb, and even her book, but miraculously she is able to find two more seats allowed, and Herb and I are in!!!

Evidence of 'not your Texas weather'....

After the class, with hats and jackets on, we prepare to brave the temperature outside, and Bruce and Vicki get their books signed by Jamie Boudreau.

Bonus:  Q & A Session
Did I mention that it is a bit chilly when we began our trek several blocks to the Canon Restaurant?  And after sunset when we walk home, the temp drops a little more.  But who cares?  We reflect on the great evening, and I get to take a photo of our group with the space needle in the background.

                                                                                                                                           Herb, Bruce and Vicki

  1. Even though the temperature had dropped, I do believe we were a good bit warmer walking home than we were walking to The Hot Stove Society.

    1. Absolutely, and not feeling the chilly air!
