When my husband had to move for work I wasn’t pleased that Portland Oregon was our new destination.
I went from a beautiful southern home to a city apartment.
What did I know about Oregon too? Absolutely nothing. I quickly figured out the weather in Portland is much different than what I was used to. Down south the cold came for maybe two weeks. It never got below freezing. I had never seen snow or ice before in my life. The rest of the time the weather was gorgeous, sunny, pool party weather. Portland, Or has the benefit of not getting freezing cold like most northern states. In fact it doesn’t get below freezing. However, Portland weather doesn’t get any higher than 80 degrees. I was looking at cool to moderately warm weather basically all year around. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. Now that I live in Oregon, it is a nice change of pace. I like that I am not sweating through my outfit the moment I step outdoors. It is kind of nice having one wardbode that I wear all year. I like that I can easily bike around to my favorite stores like grocery stores, cannabis dispensaries and local restaurants. The weather is just perfect for a bike ride. I clip on my bike basket so I can store any fun purchases like pretzel bread, cannabis oil or flower, and take out. I never am too hot during my bike ride. A jacket and the light breeze is just perfect when it comes to running errands.
