Rain and Oregon go hand in hand. Personally, I love it. Sure, it gets old being cooped up around May when all you want to do is go out and enjoy spring, but in December, you are lucky that it is raining and not snowing or icy. The past three months of 2012 have seen a lot of rain (22 inches!!!) As of last week, we were just around 50 1/2 inches for the year, which is only 4th wettest on record, but it has been the warmest December since 1999. So I'm not complaining. I can take rain. Cold is another story.

And with that we close another year. So long 2012. You brought a lot of changes in my life. Hoping this coming year is less eventful, but just as sweet.

Happy New Years everyone!

    I agree, rain - good, cold - bad.

  6. It's a good thing that we can all make choices...like our choice to move from the wet side to the dry side! I hate the rain, but tolerate the snow and cold.

    Happy New Year to you and yours~
