Rain in Oregon is not in and of itself an uncommon occurrence. In fact, it's quite common. However, over the last three years it has never rained when my wife and I have been home to visit. That's saying something since we've visited during some typically very wet months.
Today the lucky streak ended. It rained. Actually, it's still raining. It hasn't stopped raining since we arrived. Apparently my wife has lost her touch.
And just so you know, rain smells better when it has something to land on that's not dirt or a building or Utah.
P.S. Yes, I did give a big hug to the tree in my front yard.
