It’s winter and time for blizzards, tornadoes, floods, and extreme temperature, but not in Sequim. Sequim weather is well known as mild without extremes and without all the terrible natural disasters that hit other states every winter.
No Blizzards, No Tornadoes, No Hurricances, No Floods
Winter in Sequim naturally means colder temperatures, some overcast and gray skies, and a little rain. While we might complain a little, we are so fortunate we do not suffer from blizzards, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and icy cold temperatures. Many winters we don’t even have snow.
Yesterday I drove to Silverdale, which is one hour south of Sequim, and about 10 miles outside of Silverdale, it was snowing with slushy roads. On the way back to Sequim a few hours later, and once again as I got close to Sequim the roads were clean with no snow and no rain. It was overcast in Sequim, and the temperature was about 45 degrees, but I’ll take that any day over the nasty weather that is so common this time of year south and east of Sequim.
I Don’t Miss Blizzards
I don’t miss tornadoes (I lived in Illinois), flash floods (I lived in Vegas), blizzards (I lived in Alaska), 115 degrees or 50 below zero, so I’m thankful Sequim doesn’t have blizzards, or any of these, but Sequim weather is not perfect either. Still, on a scale of 0 to 10 where 10 is the perfect climate, I would rate Sequim a high 7.5.
