Five Reasons I Love the Rain



I’ve been told, in Oregon you don’t tan, you rust.  But the rain also brings some simple pleasures – Like…..

  • It doesn’t cost me anything to water the plants in my yard when it rains.
  • The sound of the drops hitting the roof – the soft, rhythmic tap, tap, tapping – is cathartic and relaxing.
  • When it rains I can get get out of doing yard work!
  • Splashing in the puddles with my grandkids is invigorating.
  • It makes a spider web look amazing!

I live in the upper Willamette Valley with my amazing husband and four very spoiled cats - three adopted feral cats and one shelter baby. We have lived here since the dawn of 1991 and love every inch of the region.
