What it's like when the sun is out in Seattle
The glorious sun rarely shows itself around these parts of the country, but when it does, you feel the same way you do after you go through a bad breakup and never want to see the person's face again, but when you see them walking down the street you remember everything you loved about them and want to get back together.
It's 45° out and people are outside in swimsuits trying to tan, some guy walks into Starbucks wearing flip flops and cargo shorts with legs that gleam, unleashed into the sun after months of being hidden from sight, you sit down in a conversation and the opener is "HOW ABOUT THAT SUN?!" and everybody tries to get everything done as if it's the only time we'll see the shiny yellow orb before it goes away forever, because it might be.
How do Seattleites react to a little sunlight here and there?
First, you tell EVERYONE.

Then you witness the fallout.
One of my fav things about #Seattle is that everybody and their mother is outside when the sun comes out. Even tho it's like 45 degrees --— Ana Reynolds (@_anareynolds) March 20, 2017
Needs more socks and sandals, but this is pretty spot on.
Then somebody tries to rain on your parade with facts.
Don't get used to this sun, everyone. Forecast for the rest of March: pic.twitter.com/WYDVmyR4iB— Angry Seattle (@angryseattle) March 19, 2017
But we'll find hapiness wherever we can, right?
Just witnessed a group of people cheer when the Sun peaked through the clouds. Wtf Seattle— Ryan Allain (@TheAllainTrain) March 18, 2017
And we always know where we can find more.
