Packing for Seattle

OK Seattle people. Tell me what the weather is going to be like for the coming week and what kind of clothes I need to pack. I'm seriously considering packing a big box and Priority mailing all my clothes to myself so I can get through the airports with just my carry on bag.

Damn and I wanted to pack light. Guess I'll just take a chance with layering. It's in the 30's and 40's here right now so I'd consider anything above that to be warm.

Cool thanks, I was expecting the wet. But now I won't bring a heavy coat at least.

It's going to be chilly and off and on wet/sunny. It was rather sunny and warm (in the sun) this past weekend, but today it's back to early 40's and raining.

I suggest layers; it's common for us in Seattle to peel out of or slip into layers of clothing. Suggest slacks (or kilt with warm trunks underneath) each day, and layers of shirts from t-shirts to thicker turtle necks (or whatever you might have). Warm socks, boots, etc. A coat or jacket (medium weight) should do for most of the colder days. It is warming up and the days are brighter now, but we're still stuttering out of winter. Expect weather between 40s - 50s, with a chance of sporadic warm days.

That's about 10 degrees warmer than we are expecting here for the next wek or so. Ok so I won't have to bring a heavy coat at least. I'm trying to figure out how to pare everything down to carry on luggage since Chicago O'Hare is famous for sending the bags of connecting flights to Mexico and things like that. Of course I suppose it wouldn't be the worst thing to have to get there and buy a few clothes.

True. If you want cheap, there's always Value Village or Goodwill. If you want less cheap, there are hundreds of stores in downtown alone that would be happy to steal all of your money. Oh, and there's Ross, which is new but almost cheap like VV and GW.

Thankfully I just got paid and got my yearly bonus check so I don't have to have as cheap a vacation as I was planning. It's just a pin in the ass to have the airline lose your bag. You usually get home before your bag catches up with you.

Last time I flew home from Germany they lost our luggage with all of our Yule toys and candy in them. When I finally got back the bags, one of them was rife with chocolate pieces stuck to everything inside. I suppose Ziploc wasn't enough this time.

My brother flew from Seattle to the coast of NC for Xmas one year and I was driving so I picked him up to go on to our folks house. They lost his check in but luckily he had a change of clothes in his carry on. He spent a week in NC and the day he flew back to Seattle, they finally found his bag in Connecticut and sent it down to NC then had to send it back to Seattle. It got there 3 days after he go back. That was the most well travelled set of clothes that never got worn.
