The sun is out people and it is a pretty big effing deal. The sun in Seattle feels different than the sun in California. Here are some comparisons for you.
The city doubles in size as people come out of hibernation and soak in as much Vitamin D as possible because you never know when it will come out again.
Everyone talks about how sunny it is outside. This is not considered a shallow conversation, but a time of rejoicing
70 degrees = tank tops
It is totally inappropriate to say or think anything negative about the warmth from the sun. Such actions will result in verbal reprimand from anyone in ear shot or the sun will hear you and go away.
People begin to say crazy things like 'I just want to get sunburned' (Holly)
The city begins to shrink in size as people retreat to buildings with air conditioning. People know that it is about to reach about 103 degrees
Every summer seems to be 'the hottest summer we have had in years'. People can't seem to believe that they actually survived that kind of heat the previous summer, it must be hotter this year
70 degrees= possibly still sweatshirt material
Any sort of conversation about how ridiculously hot it is outside is unnecessary and results in a 'no shit sherlock' face from people around you
