What is it with Seattle weather this year? Until a month ago, my worst commute ever was 1:30, tied a couple times in the 8 years I’ve been living in the Seattle area. Now I’ve broken that twice in a month. First there was last month’s freak snowstorm that gave me a 3:30 commute, and tonight it took me 1:40 to get home, just because of rain. I mean, I can understand Seattle being unable to handle snow, but rain? What the heck? Admittedly, it was a lot of rain–our office’s underground parking garage was filling up, and the parking lot was about to overflow into the lobby when I left at 5:15, but still–we’re supposed to be able to cope with water around here.

Sheesh. I’m tempted to call in sick for the rest of the winter.
