Someone missed “spider season.” | Post by u/fernandfeather
We’re not sure who’s in charge of flipping the switch on the year’s seasons in Seattle, but they’ve definitely got a sense of humor.
The way the moody, cool weather rolled in right at the start of autumn last week felt like a divine blessing for us pumpkin spice lovers. Now we can’t help but giggle that highs are supposed to reach near the 80s this week. It gets confusing on whether or not its time to pull out our sweaters, you know?
Luckily, someone mapped out Seattle’s actual seasonal calendar to help us out. We’re pretty sure today counts as summer, the sequel, but just on the verge of fall color.
Any thoughts on where you think we are? Have a favorite Seattle season? Or is there one you think we need to add in? Let us know.

Editor’s pick: Guess what season has now also begun? Ballet season, my friends, and you just know that I’m over the moon about it.
The Pacific Northwest Ballet has kicked things off with “Carmina Burana” — and I’ll just say that if dramatics and choral chanting are your thing, you’re in for a treat. I got a chance to go see it on Friday and it’s definitely helping to hold me over for “Giselle” — my favorite ballet — in February.
