The two pictures from below are from my walk this afternoon. Yes, the sun does shine in Seattle in wintertime! .. and it has been very dry the last few weeks. Precipitation for Dec 1 to 22 is running 3.61 inches below normal at 0.25 inches (compared to the normal 3.86 inches). Santa is bringing some wet weather with him tomorrow, though. (That 39 to 42 temperature is in °F and is equal to 4 to 5.5 °C).
