Spring Is Busting Out All Over

Spring has arrived in Oregon. For us this new season means color is introduced into the world again despite the persistent downpour. I doubt that it's actually BECAUSE of the rain, considering that there has been a drop or shower in the forecast since October. More than once this week someone has inserted the word "hate", with passion, in context with this weather and thus their state residency. Because rain comes with gray clouds, it does have a tendency to be depressing. Doesn't that purple just give you hope, though, that summer is around the corner for Oregon? And of course by corner, I mean July.
