Darn Rain

This weather is out of control. We've been having pouring rain and thunderstorms for a week. The forecast shows more pouring rain and thunderstorms for another week. There is a reason I'm not the biggest fan of the northwest. This would be it. Sure, the Pacific northwest is gorgeous when the sun comes out. It's just that I can't handle the clouds and the wet and the soggy for very long. I'd prefer a little less beautiful with a lot less rain. Actually, I'd prefer Hawaii where it rains everyday for 15 minutes and then the sun comes back out and everything is beautiful all the time. Two solid weeks of rain is just unacceptable.

Me: How'd you do it?
T: What?
Me: Become a magician.
T: A what?
Me: A magician.
T: You mean move you to Oregon without you knowing it?
Me: Precisely.

Funny thing is (and by funny I mean not funny in the slightest) that about the time this ridiculous weather clears up, we'll be on our way to Oregon to visit Troy's family. Maybe it'll be one of the two weeks all year that it won't be raining in Oregon.

By the way, The Spud (still trying it) is on the mend. He'll be back to straight formula in no time.


  1. call me when you're in Oregon!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. let me know, too! we'd love to see you!

  3. The safe time to come to the Northwest doesn't start until after July 4th. If you don't love rain, stay away until then.

    It's pretty here, but sheesh! Can we have some sunshine?
