Surviving Seattle in the Fall...

It doesn't matter that I was born in Washington, I spent long enough outside of the state to loose my "cold skin" and to be perpetually cold all the time. I also am not a fan of being damp for 75% of the day because the cold weather and constant drizzle just invades your body and bones. So from my many years living here and the fact that I left and had to come back, I've learned a few things that have helped me survive Seattle in the Fall.

  • Wear layers
  • Wear rain boots on the bus or in the car, and change into your nice pair when you get to your destination
  • Scarves!
  • A light shell raincoat with a hood
  • NO UMBRELLAS
  • Humidity control hair spray
  • Dry Shampoo (for when it's too cold to take a shower)
  • Get a pet!
  • Get on a healthy schedule
  • Find a local coffee/tea shop
  • Embrace the Pumpkin Spice, just deal with it.
  • No one can drive in the rain
  • Get food ( and wine) delivered
