Default Land of Mt. Hood and the Source of the East Wind

A miserably rainy, squally day here in Gresham! When I went out in it, I almost turned around and went back home! But then I thought, what the hell! But at least it is warmer than a few weeks ago, and the daffodils are coming into bloom. Current temp 55F as of 1:15 PM PDT. South wind at 9 mph, but with much harder sudden gusts! Humidity 88%. Precipitation 98%!

I hear that the Midwest and east coast is being buried in snow! A final nail in the coffin of global warming, I guess!

The ink cartridge for my printer arrived that I ordered really cheap from Amazon.com, so now I can really get down to business!

Default Land of Mt. Hood and the Source of the East Wind

A rare sunny day here in Gresham. Scattered puffy clouds. No wind. Current temp 50F. A much better day than when I went to lunch with Kim yesterday. A strong south wind blew rain into my face and tried to destroy my umbrella!

I am so glad I have gotten my printer ink cartridges so reasonably, $12 95 for both of them, new and sealed in factory boxes! I ran across an invoice on my computer from over 10 years ago stating that I paid $79.98 when I ordered them directly from Xerox!

Kim doesn't have a car, but needs to renew her Oregon Driver's before an entire year passes since it expired in order to avoid the tests. That's the way Oregon law works. She is a few years younger than I am. Yeah, a lot of those Mexican drivers don't have insurance, and probably don't have driver's licenses either. They drive junker cars, so when they get stopped, and the cars get towed, they just buy another one.

The morning rain has stopped and only a light mist remains. A light fog hangs over the hills of Gresham. Now 48F as of 2:15 PM PDT. Wind 4 mph out of the northwest. Humidity 83%.

They just started a loud performance by an operatic singer accompanied by a piano here in the library! Whatever happened to the idea that a library is supposed to be quiet!

The male singer was followed up by a female operatic singer whose voice was even more ear piercing and annoying! Sometimes the have had guitar playing singers, children's choruses, and even mariachi bands on Cinco de Mayo!

Hope you can soon get your shops open and put people to work. The country needs it.

A rare sunny day here in Gresham. Maybe because we are getting so close to the beginning of Spring! Currently 47F as of 1:00 PM PDT. Was a low of 34F at 6 this morning. Wind hardly noticeable out of the northeast.

First day of spring! As of 12:30 PM it is now 52F. Was 53F a minute ago. East wind at 20 mph, though it felt to me as though it was coming right out of the north. First sprinkle of rain were hitting my face, as the weather is ramping up for a wetter afternoon. Soon the farmers' markets will be opening, and fresh veggies (hothouse grown) will once again be available!

Time of year to look for the old fishing poles!

49F in downtown Gresham as of 1:45 PM PDT. East wind at 13 mph. Has stopped raining. Some sun poking through.

Oregon has announced it's unemployment rate is down to an historically low 4%. One only has to look at all the homeless in the parks and streets, and the fact that Portland is planning to build "little houses" in peoples back yards to house the destitute, to realize how phony this figure is!
