SEATTLE - Here's one to trick your friends with. Most associate summer as June, July and August as fall begins in September, but we're a little different out here in Seattle.

June's average high temperature is 69.6 degrees, while September's is 70.2. September's average low temperature is also a bit higher -- 51.9 vs. 51.7 for June.

The all time September high temperature record (98, set Sept. 2, 1988) is higher than June's (96, set both June 9 and June 30 in 1956.)

Although September is a bit wetter, averaging 1.63 inches of rain versus 1.49 inches for June.

Along the same lines, October (59.7) is usually warmer than April (58.2), although October gets about a half-inch more rain than April as we start into the rainy season.

Every year Retail businesses go through the same event of working on Thanksgiving Day. But at least with that job, Corporate will offer a good meal to the employees that are told it is mandatory to work on that Holiday.

Less than two weeks ago it was single digits here, probably made it into the low 40's the past few days. Lilac has new buds all over it and this one has started to grow.
