Specifically, if you're retired you don't ordinarily worry about the weekend weather too much. We made it through an overcast weekend from Canada Day July 1 to Independence Day July 4 with only a few of the tiniest sprinkles of rain.
Some grandkids and we watched a parade in Blaine, viewed the fireworks all around Birch Bay, and even exploded some of our own small-scale pyrotechnics in the back yard. Suddenly it's Tuesday and warm weather has arrived in the Northwest, supposedly topping out in the high 80s later this week.
Time to get out and enjoy the rest of our five-day weekend, known to some as Monday-Friday.
