Junuary

So Derek introduced me to a new term today (which apparently originates from Seattle): Junuary

As Urban Dictionary defines it: A sarcastic reference to an extremely cold summer day.

The top 3 search results for Junuary are:

The fact that it actually makes sense makes it less funny. For the past few weeks, the sun has popped out only a few times, and we’ve been having high winds, cold weather, lots of rain, and even SNOW! Can you believe it? Snow in June? What’s next, Christmas in July? I was hearing on the radio the other day that it was snowing in the Snoqualmie pass and then Hjo3 blogs about snowing in Pullman.

Then I hear that we’ve hit our record low temperature ever recorded for this particular time of the year. Where’s my 5 months of guaranteed sunshine!?!?

  1. The weather lately has been crazy. I’m in the Columbia Basin now though and it’s way nicer. The day it snowed in Pullman it was 63 F here. And right now it’s 78 F. Very nice.
