The Blue Angels
The Blue Angels are here! The Blue Angels are here!
Every year in late July/early August we Seattelites have an air show where we get to see the Blue Angels fly over our heads in death defying maneuvers for Seafair! It is a show that leaves you with your mouth agape and your head in a tail spin.
They arrive a few days early to practice so there is an exciting buzz in the office when they first show up. Well, they just flew overhead twice in the past 5 minutes.
Suddenly everyone is getting up from their office chairs where an impression of their butts remains due to so much sitting in front of their computers and they are peering out of the windows on the exterior portions of the building trying to catch a glimpse of the fighter pilot jets as they zoom past at incredible speeds.
Can't wait until the show this weekend!!
