I don't. I hate the sun.

I came here during the winters from California to get MORE rain and clouds.

One of the reasons I considered Portland was because of the grey and rainy weather. I just wish it rained harder instead of drizzle. I could never live in the southern half of the United States. Too much sun and too damn hot.

Seems that getting away at least one time during the dark winter months to somewhere with some sun is a good idea and helps get one thru the winter gloom.

Where do you get away to and for how long? Is a weekend jaunt enough?

Years ago when we lived in the southern Willamette Valley we would head to Sisters, Bend, or somewhere else on the eastside of the mountains. Not only did you get some sun but a chance to experience some new areas. People seem to forget that part of the state. You can also head south Klamath, Rouge River area, Medford, Grants Pass. It is not unreasonable to want some variety, that's why people go to the beach who live inland or to the mountains from the flatlands. Oregon is wonderful in the variety it offers for weekend trips, we always looked forward to a change even for just a few days. Get out and explore the sunny spots

I used to take trips out to Boise when I needed some sunshine. Sometimes I didn't have to go that far as the high desert on the other side of the Cascades will have more sunshine.
