The whole earth was brimming sunshine that morning. She tripped along, the clear sky pouring liquid blue into her soul.
- Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie
One thing that can safely be said about Seattle residents: We surely appreciate the summer sun when it comes out. (Usually some time after the Fourth of July.)
I can't imagine that those living in warmer places like Florida or southern California can truly understand what it's like to have the sun hit your face after all of those damp months.
