I did a couple of quick business errands, then did a loop around "the beach",
to see if the waves were coming over the bulkhead. (It's a West Seattle thing).
Followed by a trip to the grocery store, then the pub. Were I stayed a little to long.
About twenty miles.

Does that count?

Yes.
Yes it does.

You have to be from Seattle to understand weather terms such as,

"Rain, followed by showers"

or "Sun breaks"

Convergence Zone = wherever it's raining.
Rain Shadow = wherever I'm not.
