The Rainy Season???


I have heard tales of this thing called the rainy season here in Oregon. Yesterday, when I switched on the morning news, the weatherman was welcoming October and added with a wink "welcome to the rainy season." Something like Spring showers but in the fall maybe? After a day of sunshine and happiness I assumed it was a funny weatherman joke. Ha ha...right? Yeah, notsomuch. I awoke this morning to....rain, rain and more rain. Not the insane downpours Oklahoma gets but a constant, steady, light rain. I haven't looked out the window in a while but I bet it is still raining. The crime of all crimes: I don't own a rain coat and neither does Miss B. Did you guys know I have naturally curly hair? Rain + curly hair (that has been straightened) = FRIZZ aka Bride of Frankenstein hair! Oh Nooooooooo!!!! Help me please. I must acquire a cute rain coat/jacket with a hood -for fending off the frizz.

Yep, the other thing that comes with the rainy season in Oregon is gridlock. Apparently, 3 months of sunshine erases people's memories of how to drive in the rain. Shouldn't they be better at it than anyone else?

Get a cute hat, it makes you hate the rain less.

After last winter I seriously considered light theraphy for the coming one. But, I'm moving so I'm going to miss most of the rain and gloom. My roofers LOVED the rain today. :)

Good luck with the rain. I once thought it'd be fun to live in Portland, but I don't think I'd like the weather too much! I like wide open skies...

It's true that the caliber of the rain is different from the middle lands (whatever you can call Kansas/Oklahoma...I lived in both). I never really needed to use an umbrella there...if it was raining, it was pouring, and if it was pouring, it was storming, and if it was storming, it was lightning and no way was I going to carry a lightning rod around with me. But here (in NC), it's lighter, but constant, constant.

I could not live in Oregon, I think, because my hair already frizzes way too much. I have my own gravitational field around it, I swear.
