Hello lovelies. Guess what? It has still been raining here in Portland. I have been telling you all winter long about all the rain. It feels relentless and never ending. It started in October and has been almost non stop. In fact, the totals are in for the amount of rain so far and Portland has broken numerous records. I found the numbers interesting so I will share.
Since October first, the start of the rainy season, Portland has received 46.65 inches of rain. Which exceeds our annual rainfall total by almost seven inches. During this seven month period, Portland has had the most wet days ever with a whopping 147 days with rain. So that means in seven months, we have seen only sixty one days without rain. February and March only had three dry days and so far April has only had three completely rain free days. Sigh.... needless to say, everyone is weather weary, you can see it in people's eyes. This last week was especially cruel as we had more dark, dreary, cold rainy days that brought another two inches plus of rain. The weathermen kept saying that the weather pattern with all the rain and cool temperatures felt like a January storm. Sunshine is finally in the forecast for this weekend and for the first part of next week, let's all keep our fingers crossed that it will actually start to feel like Spring, because Summer is just around the corner. On the bright side, at least we are completely out of drought status in the entire state, and you don't have to shovel rain! Will the city soon see sunshine?
I hope you all are having a nicer, warmer spring than we are.
At least all the indoor time has allowed lots of reading and time for my needlework. I will try and post an update on my projects next week.
Other than the wet weather, things are going well here for me. Pushing on and getting through some tough days, but on the whole, I am feeling so much better. Missing my mom, like I always will, but it is getting a bit easier.
