Where’s the Summer?

June 14, 2006

People have continually asked me how I’ve been dealing with the rain in Oregon. It’s a large topic here and some people just can’t handle it. I’ve been fine up until recently.

I can’t believe it’s still rainy! In my book (which is the one that really matters) it’s actually supposed to be edging on hot right now. Lots of sun, skirts, tank tops. I get up earlier (because the sun is waking me up) and I enjoy the outdoors. Now that I’m done with school (wooohooo!) I really want it to be sunny. If any of you have lived in Oregon, will you let me know when this ends! It does get warm here, right? I distinctly remember heat when I moved here in August.

    oh no, it never really gets “sunny” per se. It’s more of a lightening of the cloud cover. Just kidding. Summer really does exist in the frigid North, it just takes a while to get there. But when it does, you will have the most beautiful 2 months of your life, followed quickly by 10 more months of rain and gloom. Yeah, there’s a reason I don’t live in the Willamette Valley anymore.

    Hehe…I have lived in Seattle for 11 years and Portland for almost a year now. Cloudy and rainy is the way it is. Even though the calendar says it should be summer. The heat part usually doesn ot come until after 4th of July. I remember one 4th of July that was 60 and rain. It was warm in Portland when I moved here, mid-July…90’s and sun. That last until late September, or so.

    Just have hope…LOL! :-)

    Hold out until the end of June. I remember July and August being really warm in PDX.

    Now, the coast — it will never get truly hot on the coast, so don’t expect to go over to Florence without a windbreaker and even pants for when the sun goes down.

    I live in the Seattle area, but used to live in your region. They are very similar. Plan on it getting warm around July 5th–just in time to ruin your next long weekend. After that, look out, the weather is usually GREAT! (But don’t tell anyone outside the PNW.)
