November is always a strange month for weather here in Seattle. Expect anything. Yesterday, it was pouring down rain and traffic came to a standstill. Several main streets were closed due to flooding. Fortunately, I drove into work early and missed the backup. We ended up getting two inches. And now this morning, we woke up to snow. Ack! Boy I am glad we were not driving to the airport either yesterday or today. We also saw that Houston and Texas had a bunch of tornadoes. So where do we change planes? Dallas. But the forecast looks sunny and clear for tomorrow.
Chile is no better. It is warming up in Santiago. Forecast is for high 80s, low 90s. Arica, the perpetual city of Spring has some clouds coming in. Villarrica has been overcast for weeks. But it was the Punta Arenas forcast that really got to me yesterday. “Wind driven showers with soaking rain later in the afternoon. High 52. Winds 20-30mph. 70% chance of rain”. Maybe it will be better in two weeks when we get to Patagonia. Yeah… right.
