As Hurricane Sandy barrels toward the East Coast, my guess is that many of you are expecting (or right in the middle of!) a stretch of rainy weather this week. Living in Seattle, rainy days are the norm here through the winter and spring. Unlike most other parts of the country, for a few months every year (okay…eight), we expect rain every day and are thoroughly surprised when it’s dry or – gasp – sunny!
With all this gloom, Seattle moms quickly learn how to keep both baby entertained, and mama staying sane when the days feel long and dreary. If the rain is light, grab and umbrella and pack up the car, and head out to explore some great indoor spots in your city. And if the rain is heavy and scary (like hurricane rain!) stay safe indoors while you build a fort or bake cookies with your little ones. Don’t let the rain make you feel too crazy. The sun always comes out again eventually – even in Seattle!
