the administrative assistant told me yesterday, “I hope you like the rain” after my branch manager told her I was moving to Portland.
But today I’m sitting here thinking about how it’s 90 degrees right now, we’re only going to get hotter as the days go by, and I am a person who is prone to getting heat sick, dehydration, and low blood pressure made worse by dehydration, heat, and salt loss…
rain has got to be fucking better than this desert.
a;lsdkf; you are moving to Portland wow awesome
People in the Pacific Northwest like to complain about the weather a lot, but really they’re ridiculously spoiled. It’s pretty ideal: there are basically two seasons: cool/rainy and warm/sunny. Seriously inconvenient weather is usually no more than a once-a-year occurance, and the temperature hardly ever gets into intense hot or cold territory (except maybe a few days in the summer, but then I really don’t like the heat so). It’s funny when it does though because people freak the fuck out like SWEET MOTHEROFGOD IT MUST BE 90 DEGREES OR SOME SHIT BREAK OUT THE POP-SICKLES GUYS DO WE EVEN HAVE A FAN (or idk maybe that’s just me). My only complaint is the lack of frequent thunderstorms.
I miss the Northwest. This will be my first summer in the New England. I’m going to miss the Northwest a lot more very soon :(.
