Merry Christmas Portland!
I hope this Christmas season finds you happy and warm. I know that isn't always the case, but we can always hope.
As you might know, I am not in Portland. It is summer where I am, and while the wet Portland winters and endless wet socks were hard, in my memories I miss the misty gray winter days and smell of pine trees. Enjoy it all! You sometimes don't know how good you have it.
