Hangout Music Festival is May 20-22 on Alabama’s Sandy White Beaches
The forecast is calling for rain—and possibly some snow showers—for the next 15 days. Whether you’re a native Seattleite or a transplant, you’ve probably learned that you need some serious inner happiness (and maybe the assistance of a happy light and vitamin D) to get through Seattle’s soggy winters.

I still remember anxiously going to bed and waking up early to peek outside to see if snow had really fallen (per Seattle forecast—often wrong) and if school would be cancelled. I’d turn on the TV and watch as the schools scrolled by—would we have a delay or even better—would we get a snow day?! This mix of anticipation and joy is something that we don’t get as often anymore… until today! (more…)
