despite the rain

pdx1

It's been rainy and I've been sick.  Gray skies make me miss the Pacific Northwest sometimes, with its steady, incessant drizzling.  The roof of my car was wet this morning, somehow, where it met the windshield.  I couldn't tell where the water was seeping in.  When I lived in Portland I had a mushroom like an enormous pig's ear growing in my bathroom.  Now I have a spontaneously leaky Subaru (last spring the moisture came in through the floor).  Some things never change.

  2. I very seldom miss the weather of the Pacific Northwest (get lost, incessant drizzle), but occasionally it's good for moody days...

    Sorry about your car though...

  3. I do like the sound of rain but I sure dont miss Oregon weather. I rained all the time! I need a little sunshine in my life. Hope you feel better.

  4. Rain is my absolute favorite weather, it is when I feel the most inspired creatively!! That photo is so stunning! Is that from Portland?
