Why I Like Portland #1

There are many things I like about living in Portland. One of them is how green and lush the landscape is year round.

Of course, to have a green and lush landscape requires rain …

… and rain requires clouds …

… and a byproduct of clouds is often colorful sunsets …

… and in Portland, the colorful sunsets create a wonderful backdrop for the green and lush landscape.

Here is a view of the sunset taken from my deck, just 5.5 miles from downtown Portland, on February 14th.

And that’s another thing I love about living in Portland.

Cheers – DJD

Rain for the week: 1.5 in. 2012 year to date: 13.0 in.
