Seattle in winter-- damp, oppressive grey days of no sun, never ending, until about May when the grey starts to lighten and the city lives up to its Emerald City name. The sun doesn't officially come out (ha, get it, that's a liberal Seattle joke) to stay till July 5, but I have tricks up my sleeve to welcome summer in the meantime.
My biggest rebellion against the clouds? Make lemonade. It's good for grey days and for sunshine. I like mine tart and sweet. Here's a few that I've tried, listed in favorite order.
And my very favorite? If you'll forgive me, I'll tell you next time, but if you can't wait, go to Milstead and Co. in Fremont.
