have family in the Seattle area, seems like its pretty intense up there! In fact I think its been hotter there the last day or so than in SoCal. A weather feat indeed!
In the meantime, it's 66 F here after a nice rainstorm. Not to gloat, I lived in the Pacific Northwest for a few years, summer used to be the best season (no constant drizzle), considering the lack of AC, they must be suffering. Besides, it will get hot as f**k come July and August here right around the corner, so no reason to be smug, karma is coming.
The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.
If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.
