Default Rain Forest

Portland is absolutely beautiful all year round because it stays green green green. It's like living in a tropical paradise but the rain is constant and cold.

If it was constant and cold, nothing would bloom and flower......

I disagree about the cold. It is cool, not cold. There's a huge difference. Head over to Eastern Oregon for the winter and you can see cold. I really like the fact that during the summer it (usually) isn't 90+ degrees. This is the first place I've lived where I didn't have air conditioning...and didn't really need it.

As for the rain...yup. However there's a pretty good chance that it's so green precisely because of the constant misting.

There is also a pretty good chance that it's so green here because most of the trees here are evergreens.

and Constant Misting. (shaking head) sigh
I will say, Yup, this is truly coming from me!! But yes, I will say, June is coming in awful dreary....kinda chilly and wet...Not tank top weather yet, thats for sure! but, I have deep faith that it will come soon, and we will have our glorious summer well into the fall months.
yup, sunshine to help all these trees/shrubs/flowers to grow, bloom and blossom. Soon.
