Noah...is that you?
I'm a born and bred Oregonian. The rain that baffles the rest of the country only makes me feel more at home. Even when it rains non-stop for what feels like 40 days and nights I'm rarely the one to complain. I HATE being hot, so the longer the temperatures stay in the 60s, the better for me. (I told you I was a TRUE Oregonian!) We are now staring down the barrel at June, however, and it is STILL raining! We had about a 5 day break of clear skies and high 70s and then back to rain. It hasn't been just any old rain either, its been torrential down pour. I'm honestly expecting to hear the voice of the Lord summoning us to build an ark any day now. Our lawn is nothing but mush. Our gutters have become expert fountains. Our driveway now believes it's a slip and slide. Our dog has decided to hibernate and refuses anything that requires stepping onto the mud that was once our backyard. If the rain doesn't stop soon Elli may have to just learn to swim in our street puddles for fun since she has now scoured every inch of the house for entertainment. Rain, rain...RAIN! Dear Rain, I understand it's your duty to make this beautiful region green and fancy, but there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Do you mind taking a break for a few weeks? I have projects to do! I have a house to sell! I have a toddler that has decided toilet licking is a great way to spend her time! Please, please, please go to the Mojave...or Texas, I hear it's hot and dry there and I'm sure they'd appreciate your visit. I'm not asking you to leave forever, just until it's so hot (85ish) that I start longing for you again. Thanks. Sincerely, Jenn...and many other Oregonians
