You will never be inside all winter around here. The sun shines alot even in the winter compared with many other places. You have many great days and a few not so great. Even if it is well below freezing, the sun will still melt the snow. It is very odd.

My biggest complaint about winter here is that it can go on forever. Our first Memorial Day here it was in the 80's. My brother in law said it was going to snow later on in the day...we said he was nuts. Sure enough, a front came through sending temps into the high 20's and we got a couple inches. The snowiest months of the year here (Colorado Springs) are March and April respectively. That takes some getting used to .

Right on. Awesome post.

I lived in SW Portland, OR for 40 years and in Colorado Springs for 8 years. 20 degrees in Portland is worse than -5 in Colorado.

So, go live in the gray Northwest for 360 days out of the year.

I know exactly what you mean about the 20 degrees feeling so much colder here. I like Portland it is ashame the problems they are having right now but definitely a great city we always enjoy...we went to SW Portland for my daughters dance and church. So coming from this area what is the major cultural differences I should be aware of in your opinion for us???
