A series of six weather systems is poised to roll into the Puget Sound region, one right after the other, bringing consistent rainfall for at least the next week. While none of these events on its own is forecast to be problematic or spectacular, together they signal the beginning of a long, gloomy wet season known to some as “The Big Dark.””

Looks like the Seattle Times finally found a use for a church building.
Too bad it is just a photo-op to sell papers instead of a temple full of repentant reporters.
Well, no one can say God has not arranged warning signs of the coming “Big Dark”, as in “THE” coming “Big Dark.” Day.
“The great day of the Lord is near- near and coming quickly. Listen!
The cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter, the shouting of the warrior there. That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness, a day of trumpet and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the corner towers.
I will bring distress on the people and they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord . Their blood will be poured out like dust and their entrails like filth.
Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord’s wrath. In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.”[/quote_box] What hypocrites Seattle is, they can spot seasons changing (kinda a “duh” thingy) but refuse to repent of their multitude of sins.

He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky.
How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?[/quote_box]

“We don’t name storms, and we try not to use the word ‘historic’ before they happen,” Johnson explained from the screen-filled control room of the weather service office at Sand Point.
Still, he understands the term’s allure. Nights are long this time of year, and the days can be dim. People’s “personal tolerance” for both going to work and coming home in wet darkness can be stretched toward its limit.
At about 47 degrees latitude, Seattle has one of the most extreme dark seasons in the continental United States. We get fewer than 8 ½ hours of daylight on the shortest day in December, and what little daylight we get is often shrouded by clouds.
Seattle psychiatrist David Avery, who’s studied circadian rhythms (our “body clock”), has previously said that is why so many of us experience seasonal affective disorder, a depression that’s tied to changes in seasons and, more specifically, the amount of light to which we are exposed.” Brace yourselves, Seattle: The Big Dark is coming | The Seattle Times
