About the Weather

06 June 2008 · 4 comments

It is June 6th, just two weeks from the start of summer. Here are the current weather conditions:

  • The temperature is 10 degrees centigrade (or 50 degrees fahrenheit for those of you in Oregon City).
  • The wind is from the south at 18 miles per hour, with gusts up to 28 miles per hour.
  • The sky is completely overcast. It looks like a winter’s day at the Oregon coast.
  • There’s a 90% chance of precipitation. Translation: it’s going to rain off-and-on today. Mostly on.

What I’m trying to say is that it feels like November, not June. I am cold. I am sick of the rain. It’s bad news when even life-long Oregonians are frustrated by the weather.

Yeah, I feel the same way. I had high hopes for my garden but the only thing that seems to be growing is the radish crop.

And the lawn.

Great term coined by the Oregonian this morning…”June-uary” That’s one that might stick.

Today they said it was going to be partly sunny. If this partly sunny, I’ll take it.
