Oregon rain

I went out to get the mail a while ago, my mail box is about a block from my apartment......it was sprinkling a bit as I started out, by the time I got to the box, it was a down pourI tried to walk under the trees for a little shelter, and it did help, but by the time I got back home, I was drenched, like I had taken a shower fully clothed, it actually felt pretty good, it wasn't really cold out so didn't get chilled, just very wet.......then I remembered my plants I had put outside last week.......poor babies were drenched too, and 1/2 of the soil in their pots had been washed away.......so I moved them to safety, and went back in and changed my soggy clothes.....life in Oregon, gotta love it! Its so verdant and green here in my little piece of it, lots of trees and greenery, I love it


  1. We had rain here yesterday and last night. Verdant and green is an excellent way to phrase it. Happy nature...

  2. I'm so glad to see someone else--if not actually enjoy weather--works with it. I hear so many complain about the weather that it seems like nothing is ever going to satisfy them! Good for you!
