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.

While seated at a Starbucks, a homeless man came in and sat nearby. His scent was unpleasant and people looked at him and rolled their eyes. He was simply doing what we were all doing, drinking coffee and taking advantage of free WIFI. He brought his dog, Legacy, who was well behaved.
