Portland dwellers put up with a lot when it comes to the weather. We do it out of love for the area, but mostly with the promise of amazing summers to look forward to (nevermind that one summer when it rained the first 2 weeks of June…).
In the rare event that we should be graced by the sun’s presence before then, all bets are off. We’re clocking out early, grabbing a bev and heading to the park to take advantage of every last minute. We’re wearing shorts, and shoes with no socks. We’re sitting in a beam of light until the sun has set.
Because when we wake up the next day, we know it will be to the sound of rain on our rooftops.
