We just keep rolling around here.
Sunday night we went to the stadium for another Sounders soccer match. It was a hot and muggy evening, with no breeze coming in over the sound. Fortunately the team was hot enough to pull off a 2-0 victory over Huston dynamo, which puts the Sounders back on the top of the stats chart.
When we left the stadium, it was dark, too soon now, and the super moon was rising.
Monday was very hot, finally reaching 96° here at SeaTac. Boiling potatoes and eggs for potato salad and doing laundry heated up the house, so by 11:00 I closed up the doors and windows and turned on the air conditioner to 75°.
We spent the afternoon reading and dozing until it was time to go to Tom's sister Jan's house on Henderson Bay for a family dinner.
Jan and Tom's brother Dave and wife Vicki were visiting from their home in Los Altos, CA. We ate and visited and then posed for a group "selfie" using Dave's "selfie extender".
Middle row: Jan's partner Ann, Linda Reeder, Ann Reilly, Mac's wife, Dave Reeder, Jan Reeder.
Bottom row: Vicki Reilly Reeder, Irene and Isaac Gibson
It was a bit cooler there, and clouds were moving in, setting up for a thunder storm later. After dinner we sat on the deck enjoying the sunset. Everyone had their cell phone out, taking photos, including me, of course.
It wasn't long after this that the first rain drops fell. They turned out to be sparse, but broke up the party. It was dark when we headed back home, with the night sky lighted up with streaks of lightning.
Today it is much cooler, and mostly cloudy, and as of late this afternoon we await the next thunder storm. If only we could get some rain to go along with it.
