I'm glad you didn't either, you've already learned quite a bit!

But yeah, the rain. But when it was nice, it was PERFECT!
I wonder what time of the year you were here. In the summertime (July and August mostly,) it can get hot (for us) with no rain at all.

I was there in May. You still had the occasional clock-wise (or counter-clockwise, I can't remember which) storm ease in off the ocean, giving the rain/shine/rain cycle. But then there were some four or five day stretches that were magnificent.

Ha ha, ardvark. Me and my friend were walking around one day out there that I thought was BEAUTIFUL. Sunny. Low 80s. Just ideal. Well, one of my friend's neighbors was doing some gardening and she straightened up and said to my friend: "Do you believe this heat!"

I was like, heat? LOL But hey, everything is relative.

No, not everything...

That reminds me when I went back to Delaware as a college exchange student (to the University of Delaware in Newark.) I drove my S-10 pickup all the way back there (in September,) fortunately I had air conditioning. That was an interesting 5 day road trip. But I remember when I arrived where my dorm room was and got out, it felt like I immediately stepped into an oven! The heat and humidity was absolutely incredible. Here in Oregon, you don't experience humidity like that.

Regards...
