Yes, A Post About The Weather

I love this weather!

I've been a little disappointed by the lack of rain since we moved here. I've been starting to wonder where all these people who warned us against moving here because of "all the rain" got their faulty intel.

I really hope that this is representative of "Winter in Portland."

i'm with you on how great this weather is.

I was beginning to think the rain was the only way they keep people out of town. Like if they just convince everyone that it rains all the time, no one will want to move here.

I like the rain, it makes me stay inside and study! And if you're a runner, the rain is an absolute blast!

What is the matter with you people?
I can only assume you have never spent a winter here.
The darkness will come, oh yes, the crushing depression will paralyze you and leave you a mere shell of the person you once were.
Just wait.

Thanks, anonymous 3L - That is exactly the kind of comment I heard before I moved. Well, maybe in person the comments weren't as harsh but the content was basically the same.

I'll keep you updated on the state of my person :-)

only wussies from Arizona or So Cal can't handle the weather here. Live here for a few years and you will grow to like the rain. Well maybe 10 years.
