I work on the telephone, talking with people all over the country. When they learn I am in Oregon, they almost always ask, “Doesn’t it rain there all the time?”
In fact, our autumn rain started yesterday, and the local paper said it was the most we’ve had since May. It really wasn’t much yesterday, so that means four months without rain.
I like the gloomy, damp, cool conditions. They justify my tank of coffee in the morning, and inspire my writing. This is my season!
