First, it rains a lot. Especially today, rained all day literally. We did not see the sun. Apparently in winter this goes on for weeks.
But, it's a light mist.

Which meant you never get wet. You just get refreshed

This is a very good point! Weather is just weather, no matter where one lives. I have to admit that when I lived in Minneapolis, I was never a big fan of snow, although I also realized that I was well-acclimated for it, having grown up in that region. It wasn't really worth complaining about, you just adjusted your wardrobe and mindset accordingly. Like many, I could appreciate the natural beauty of a fresh snowfall, although after several inches of it, getting around sometimes became a bit of a chore. An avid bicyclist there for many years, I frequently "winterized" my mountain bike for the winter, and could travel year-round most of the time (which was a great way to stay in shape!).

When we packed the last few things in our moving truck for our departure from Minneapolis, it was early February, and my fingers barely escaped severe frostbite a number of times. When we were unpacking the truck in Portland, it started to rain, and one of our new neighbors apologized for the weather. The funny thing is, we didn't mind a bit - it was much more pleasant unpacking in a bit of rain, than it had been to pack in the Minnesota winter!

Generally, the only adjustment I need to make for winter in Portland is an appropriate jacket and a hat with a visor, to keep (most of) the rain off of my glasses.

Portland literally has ALL of those things.
