My mom’s side of the family (and all their friends and spouses) have kept a log book of the happenings on the island since the 60’s when they started leaving Seattle to summer on Johns Island. It’s always fun to look back and read about past family reunions, big storms, holidays, and such in the big book. Tucked in between the pages are loose sheets of paper colored on in marker and colored pencil: the weather calendars. Maybe it had to do with being so close to the sea, or maybe it was a distraction on cloudy, drizzly days but every calendar has its rays of sunshine or drops of rain colored in its box. We are keeping our own weather calendars and it shows an entire month of July sun!
