Sunny w/50% Chance Of Anxiety

On May days here in the 1970s, I didn’t worry much when I looked out the window of my morning high school classes and saw the pouring rain. I knew that by the time school ended in the afternoon, the sun would be in the sky. Perfect weather for our bike rides through Riverside State Park or for walks in Audubon Park. Back then, we could easily predict the spring and summer weather in Spokane. May? Rain in the morning, followed by afternoon clearing. Memorial Day? Fifty-fifty chance of rain. June? Don’t go to camp; it always rains. Fourth of July? See Memorial Day. July and August? Mostly hot weather, interspersed with glorious thunderstorms. But I’m no longer predicting spring-winter weather, because the weather patterns I grew up seem to have vanished. I miss them/Rebecca Nappi, SR. More here. (Spokesman-Review illustration)

Question: Do you miss predictable weather in the Inland Northwest?
