The calendar says that it's well into spring. But here in the Pacific Northwest, the weather is not so sure about that. We may have a spring-like day here or there, but then it's back to the heavy coats. Yesterday we were supposed to have a high of 63 degrees. Now back when I lived in Southern California, a high of 63 would mean that the weatherman was telling you to bring a coat because it was going to be a chilly day. But here in Washington, that's shorts and flip-flops weather. If it hits 70, it's a heatwave! Yes, things are a little different around here.
There's an insurance company up here that has some pretty great radio commercials that hit the nail on the head. You might remember First Snowflake Freakout Lady that I posted about a while back. Well now I'd like to introduce you to 50 Degrees Shirt's Off Guy. First go to this website. At the bottom of the page in the middle, click on "view the ads". Once you get there, go to the column on the right and at the bottom click on 50 Degrees Shirt's Off Guy. Have yourself a listen. I'll wait.
Yes, around here you're bound to see a lot of blinding white flashes of naked torsos. And legs. And arms. So if you ever visit the Pacific Northwest this time of year, be sure to bring your sunglasses. No, you won't need them for the sun. But you might want to shield your eyes from the glare off our skin.
