A quintessential Portland spring day




Yesterday we had four periods of rain sandwiched between five periods of sunshine.  The morning was mostly sunny and then at noon it poured.  By one, it was sunny again.  It is quite amazing how much and how often the weather changes in the springtime here.  As the day progressed, the changes became more frequent.

It is very energizing and exciting.  Our first visit to Portland was the first week in March and the weather enchanted me... sunshine,hail, sunshine, rain, sunshine, rain, sunshine....  Somehow it all happens without any wind, although there must be some air movement in the atmosphere to make it happen.

One must remember to carry rain protection even when it is sunny because rain is just around the corner.

I DO love Portland.

Me too! But I'm mostly staying inside admiring the bursts of rain through the glass. =)
