What’s on your weather app? I mean, if you use a weather app. What I’m wondering is which locations you have saved, and why? I’ll go first:

• Eugene. Because it’s where I live. Right now it’s 55 degrees and drizzly, which is kind of a depressing gear-shift from all the sun we’ve had lately. (But these guys seem to be enjoying it.)

• Coos Bay. JB’s hometown, where his parents live, a place we visit pretty regularly. I took the boys there for Mother’s Day weekend to stay with JB’s mom, since JB and his dad were hog hunting in Florida. I know, right? A hunting trip on Mother’s Day? I’ve given him his allotted amount of crap for this, but I’m still eye-rolling our calendar:

seriously?

Oh yes I will be SURE to remember Father’s Day thank you for CIRCLING IT here I bought you a weekend spa getaway FOR ME.

• Elkton. The tiny town that’s closest, weather-app-wise, to our family cabin on the Umpqua River. I still can’t get over the fact that it’s only 90 minutes away, instead of, like, seven hours.

• Bellevue. Where we used to live, and I only keep this location so I can compare the weather and feel smug when it’s sunny here and raining in Seattle.

• Sunriver. A spot in central Oregon we like to visit. Sunriver is essentially a big sprawling planned resort-like community which sounds sort of awful but isn’t in the least. We just booked three nights in a rental house as part of our July road trip vacation and I cannot WAIT.

• Galice. Galice (pronounced gah-LEESE) is less of a town and more of a general area in southern Oregon on the Rogue River. We have a family camping trip there next month (at the Indian Mary campground I wrote about here), and we just made an impromptu trip there last weekend to 1) meet JB’s father and brother coming off the 43-mile trail, and 2) stay the night in a cabin. It was an amazing time, and I barely need to keep this location saved because I swear the Rogue weather is always the same: SUNNY AND AWESOME.

seeeelllllffiiiiie!

Okay, your turn!

Ooh, I like this game! Oregon is totally on my ‘places to go’ list, btw.
I have Melbourne, Australia – which is where I live now – although today is ‘mostly cloudy’, the sun is out and it has that lovely chill meaning Winter is coming.
The Gold Coast, Australia – because its usually nicer there weather-wise and we spent a long weekend there late last year.
Invercargill, New Zealand – my hometown and where my family still live. Mostly keep this in my app so I can giggle about how much worse the weather is there.
Athens, Greece – it was the last stop on our 2 month Europe trip this time last year, and I just haven’t removed it.
Dubai, UAE – not sure why I included this one in my app as we literally just stayed the night there during our stop-over. It was HOTTT!

–Milwaukee-ish, WI, where I live. Actually two of them, one where our house is and one where the kids’ school is, because my 8 yo daughter loves the weather app and doesn’t seem to get that 11 miles doesn’t make a difference in the forecast.

–Western Wisconsin, where I grew up and my parents live. It’s handy because my parents are weather watchers, so I like to see the info. Also, weather in this part of the world tends to move east, so we get their weather about a 1/2 day later.

–Los Angeles-ish, where my brother lives. However, this one can make a person bitter, living in Wisconsin and watching southern CA weather. Polar vortex, anyone?

–Wherever we’re going on vacation next. We like to count the days and watch the temps.

Mine are kind of boring compared to some on here! I have my hometown, the town where my kids go to school/daycare, the town where my husband and I work, and lastly Santa Maria CA, where my little sister is stationed.

Ooh! I just saw this post so I am about a month late but whatevs. Here goes:

Anchorage, Alaska: I live here. We are currently at 19 hours, 21 minutes of daylight. Since we just had the solstice we are, unfortunately, on the downswing of things. We lost 12 seconds of light today! It’s currently 63 and sunny/rain/hailing. Yes, all three concurrently.

Ketchikan, Alaska: I grew up in this small island community in South East Alaska. It is a temperate rain forest and gets about 13 feet a year. It is only a 1 hour 45 minutes flight from Seattle. It is a breathtaking place. Currently 55 degrees and yea, raining.

Durban, South Africa:
My husband is from there and his family still lives there. I like to see how HOT it is when they are in summer and we are in the frigid winter. Comparing the temperature can be a 100 degree difference sometimes!

Poipu, Hawaii: This is on my favorite island, Kauai. I only have this on my app so I can torture myself in winter and be wistful at the same time.

Hey, this was fun :)
