Okay, I know it’s not the same as the midwest snow belt, the east coast or New England, but we have had the wettest winter Portland has seen since the 1960s. I expected rain, it’s a rainy climate here, but even the local weather people are saying “enough is enough!”
So far, since we arrived here in mid-November, we have broken records or at least had notable events: an extremely early snowfall a week before Thanksgiving, records for the lowest high temps in a day and the lowest lows (same day), night temps in the ‘teens a half dozen times (once a year is usual), and now we have exceeded a 120 year record for total seasonal rainfall, with more to come today and the rest of the week. Welcome to Portland.
We still love it here, the property, house, people everything, but a little less of the wet stuff would be okay at this point.
