I think I know why...

I think I've figured out why it seems like it can't possibly be eight days until Christmas.

Snow. Or more precisely, the lack thereof.

Back in eastern Washington (where I've spent the better part of the past nine winters) there would have been snow on the ground for six to eight weeks by now. Contrast this to the greater Seattle area, where the recent low temperatures (averaging around 40-some degrees) have consistently been higher than the high temperatures I've become accustomed to back east (typically in the high 30s). Not to mention Seattle's reputation as drizzle capital of North America.

Oh, well...such is life.
