No, there is no blistering heat wave up in the Oregon mountains, I merely use it to remind myself that things could be worse, so much worse.
Yesterday I drove to Sandy and for a brief moment all I could think of was driving until I met with the Sun. I had to remind myself that I did not have my water or sewer hose with me and I had no clue as to which direction the elusive Sun was hiding. It is now the middle of July and it remains cool and rainy.
The pattern has been that on the weekends it turns warm and sunny, just in time for me to go to work, and as soon as my work week ends, the clouds and cool weather returns. Good for the weekend campers, not so good for me.
