Spring Has Come and Gone


Saturday, we had spring. Seventy and sunny, clear, got the weed-eater and the machete out and took a whack at the grass, blackberry vines, the English ivy. Worked up a good sweat, and the yard looks better.


Easter Sunday, it drizzled on and off all day.


Today, we had, what was for us, serious rain, from about four a.m. until nine a.m. or so, and it's been windy and rainy and sun-breaks since. There's a term I never heard until I moved up here, "sun-breaks ..."


The current forecast is for it to rain until the end of time. Or at least until next weekend.


Apparently not too bad for the cherry tree out back, to judge from the blossoms. 


Welcome to Oregon, folks ...

yeah, but at least it was on a weekend this year.

Spring is Portland. Mixed sun and showers, sometimes together, occasional hail, and a good reason to learn to layer. Is good like that...

You're exaggerating, Steve. The forecast is "Rain for 40 days and 40 nights or until the Ark leaves"
