Washington was nicknamed "The Evergreen State" by a pioneering Seattle realtor who probably thought that the scrub desert of the eastern half of the state wasn't worth mentioning. He also may have thought that "The Everwet State" probably wasn't a slogan that would inspire people to settle here, so he decided to focus instead on the green growth that results from all the rain. Probably a wise move.
There was a bit of a break in the wet weather this morning and Christine and I ventured forth for Elevenses, which folks from the UK and Hobbits will tell you is one of the many important meals of the day.
3 more miles added to the monthly total.
