    Sorry, but the Seattle Underground Tour only operates during the peak summer vacation months.
    Basically, Memorial Day weekend, through Labor Day weekend, (last week in May, through 1st week of Sep).
    I looked at the schedule in the link, but that has not been my experience. Better call for accuracy.

    Great 'street photo' ops along the Pier walk. Pike Place Market was mentioned, too.
    Good weather or bad, I could spend a day or two, shooting pictures at those nearby water front attractions.

    So, it's quite variable. But for the most sun, you'll need to come during our hit-or-miss summer, which may be summer, and it may not. Depends. We don't know.
    And as I write this only 24 hours after both of the above posts... it's 28F/-2C outside and snowing lightly.

    It is what it is, until it isn't. Go figure...

    And here come those ritual November floods I was referring to...



    From the National Weather Service today, this Special Weather Statement was posted for the Puget Sound region of Western Washington State. That means Seattle and outlying areas:

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
    313 PM PST THU NOV 15 2012

    ...A MAJOR CHANGE IN THE WEATHER IS COMING THIS WEEKEND...

    A SERIES OF STRONG WEATHER SYSTEMS WILL ARRIVE IN WESTERN
    WASHINGTON BEGINNING SATURDAY. EACH SYSTEM WILL BRING RAIN...HEAVY
    AT TIMES...WIND TO MAINLY THE COAST AND NORTH INTERIOR...AND SNOW
    TO THE MOUNTAINS.

    RAIN...
    RAIN WILL DEVELOP LATE FRIDAY NIGHT OR SATURDAY MORNING. RAINFALL
    AMOUNTS WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES OVER THE COAST AND OLYMPICS. ALL
    AREAS WILL GET SOME RAIN. ANOTHER WAVE WILL KEEP THE RAIN COMING
    TO MAINLY WESTERN SECTIONS SATURDAY NIGHT. ANOTHER VERY WET FRONT
    ARRIVES SUNDAY AFTERNOON...AND ANOTHER SYSTEM ARRIVES MONDAY. THE
    PATTERN REMAINS WET THROUGH AT LEAST THURSDAY. ALL IN ALL A VERY
    WET PERIOD IS COMING. THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE HIGH ENOUGH THAT
    SOME FLOODING ON THE MOST FLOOD PRONE RIVERS IS LIKELY
    .

    WIND...
    BREEZY OR WINDY CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY WITH THE FIRST TWO MAJOR
    SYSTEMS...SATURDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. AT THIS TIME HIGH WIND IS NOT
    FORECAST...BUT PARTS OF THE COAST AND THE NORTH INTERIOR WILL
    LIKELY GET WIND THAT IS JUST BELOW HIGH WIND...SUSTAINED WINDS OF
    20 TO 35 MPH WITH GUSTS 45 TO 55 MPH. SUBSEQUENT SYSTEMS DO NOT
    LOOK QUITE AS WINDY...BUT THERE IS USUALLY AT LEAST SOME WIND WITH
    FRONTS.

    SNOW...
    THE SNOW LEVEL WILL FLUCTUATE BETWEEN 3000 AND 5000 FEET OVER THE
    NEXT WEEK WHILE COPIOUS PRECIPITATION FALLS. AT THIS POINT IT
    SEEMS LIKE A SURE BET THAT THE REMAINING OPEN HIGH PASS...
    WASHINGTON PASS ON THE NORTH CASCADES HIGHWAY...WILL RECEIVE HEAVY
    SNOW. PLACES LIKE PARADISE ON MOUNT RAINIER AND MT BAKER WILL ALSO
    GET HEAVY SNOW. THE LOWER PASSES...SNOQUALMIE...STEVENS...AND
    WHITE...WILL PROBABLY GET A MIXTURE OF PRECIPITATION TYPES
    INCLUDING SNOW...RAIN...AND FREEZING RAIN. HEAVY SNOW IN ONE OR
    MORE OF THESE PASSES AT TIMES IS POSSIBLE. TRAVEL IS LIKELY TO BE
    ADVERSELY AFFECTED.

    WEATHER MODELS HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH TIMING AND OTHER DETAILS WHEN
    THE PATTERN IS AS PROGRESSIVE AS THIS APPEARS TO BE. WITH AN
    IMPRESSIVE SERIES OF STORMS HEADED OUR WAY...THERE SEEMS LITTLE
    DOUBT THAT WESTERN WASHINGTON IS HEADED THE SORT OF WET AND
    WINDY WEATHER THAT IS COMMON TO LATE NOVEMBER.


    Methinks the time for sustained darkroom work has once again arrived...

    Yes indeedy! November is a good darkroom month. I was out with the Crown Graphic today and have an evening of film developing planned.
    It's a good month for studio work too.....

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
