When we first moved here last year people warned us about the winter weather.
They were right, it rains a lot in Portland in the late fall and winter. At the time, a lot of rain and consecutive overcast days didn’t seem like a bad trade for months of winter, bitter cold and many feet of snow. After a full year I still feel that way.
Grey skies and the diffuse light they bring are also great for taking interesting pictures.
Wet pavements are too.
