|This is Deimos. He is an awesome swimmer. He can't wait until summer either.|
It's only January, and we still have, at the very least, 5 more months of rain. Did I mention that we've already had 4 months of rain, thus far? That's right, it rains about 9 months a year around these parts. I'm lucky enough to live in a convergence zone, so even when it's not raining in Seattle, you can bet, it's raining at my house. I live about an hour east, of the west side, of the base of Mt. Rainier. Just in case you cared.
We live on a little man-made lake, called Lake Tapps. Now, our house isn't directly on the lake, but I could, if I had the proper throwing skills, probably hit water with a rock, from my front yard. We do however have to parks in our neighborhood that gives us all the lake access we could ask for.

The best and worst thing about the lake is, the local water alliance that owns it, drain it every year. Usually from the weekend after Labor day, until a couple weeks before Memorial Day. It doesn't make for the greatest of views, well, depending on your perspective.
|This is what our lake looks like in January.|

Goodbye blue sky, goodbye.........
