Letter to the Editor: Hydroplanes mean summer is here
At 5:39 a.m. July 4, I shut my three-pane windows, sure that the Vashon thunderboats had cancelled due to weather. The gray showing from the Tacoma direction looked like any moment the wet would be ours again, so I thought, “I don’t blame them one bit.”
So, at 6 a.m., what’s that sound? Can it be? It is — that obnoxious yowl of one, or were there more? Between my trees and that grayish haze I couldn’t be sure, but there he was. Yippee and hallelujah! My July 4 is complete.
Through triple-paned windows — a smile on my face — the rest of the summer can begin.
Thanks for all the work you guys and gals put in, it is appreciated so much. Such darn good enjoyment, right, Vashon? Thanks again.
