I was an adult before I realized sunbreak was a term pretty exclusively used in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, I just checked the Urban Dictionary, and Seattle is specifically mentioned.
Today is a classic sunbreak day. It rained all day yesterday, so this morning when the sun kinda sorta came out for a bit people rushed outside to mow the lawn, take a walk, and generally just check what’s going on outside.
It’s kind of a fun game. “Think we can walk to the store before it rains again? Look at that cloud way over there. I think we can make it. Let’s go!!"
In other news, my new band name is The Sunbreaks.
