Sunny Daze with Scooby

Sunny Daze with Scooby describes what life is like here lately. We are in a drought emergency statewide and everything has dried up. The sky is blue and cloudless. [My photo Mt Rainier. (elevation 14410 ft or 4392 m)] Now it is very warm and as much as Scooby got prepared to go for a walk as you see, it is better to stay inside out of the sun and try to stay cool. He is a bit disappointed. He gets carsick so no airplane rides if that is what you are thinking. A scenic one hour flight is $100 which includes a hamburger and fries at the Top Gun Bar & Grill adjacent. I do not know the cat $ rate.

  1. That’s a gorgeous photo of the mountain. A plane tour sounds like a lot of fun. Actually, the burger afterwards sounds really good too! Scooby looks adorable in his hat. For both our areas, I hope the drought ends this year.

  2. You look good in your hat, Scooby. I hope it cools down for you soon. We are getting far too much rain, and apart from a few odd days summer seems to be passing us by.

  3. Ugh this heat and drought! It seems so strange to see the PNW all dried out. 20 years ago, I took the kids on a college touring trip in Washington and Oregon in early August. (For some reason, they all wanted to go to school in the Northwest. Older Daughter eventually went to Reed College in Portland; Younger Daughter went to the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, and Son went to Evergreen State College in Oly, where he still lives.) It RAINED nonstop the whole week we were in Washington. I remember taking a tour of UW’s campus in Seattle: we had the dog then, and the poor guy’s curly hair was soaked by the time we finished, though our only alternative was leaving him alone in the car, which he hated. There was a pause in the rain—well it slowed to a drizzle by then—while we were in Tacoma having lunch; then we drove down the I-5 to Olympia, where it proceeded to pour. My older daughter refused to get out of the car at that point—she thought Olympia was a “hick town”—so we left her in the car with the damp dog and walked around the soggy campus. Younger Daughter said nope but Son was enchanted by the hippies and North Face-wearing outdoorsy types. Amazingly, when we got to the Oregon border, the rain stopped and we saw sunshine for the first time since crossing the Cascades. I told the kids that if they wanted to spend four years out there, they had to buy rain gear. Now, I guess…well, I’m hoping the rain will return, though nothing like the soggy mess we experienced that summer.
