This is now my fifth season of Portland rain. I haven't grown sick of it; on the contrary, I actually love all this rain. Yeah, yeah, yeah I turn into a grumpy person when I forget my umbrella at home but in the grand scheme of things it's not that bad. Last night as I was walking home from work I actually stuck my nose out and took a huge sniff of rainy air. I got a good chuckle out of doing that but seriously, I thought to myself - it smells so good here! I'm hoping tomorrow lets up a bit so that we can go kayaking.
