It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Oregon?!


It’s been wet–a lot–for well over a year here in my part of the Northeast. It began last winter in March with 3 extremely wet, heavy snows.

That was followed by wet–from April until October–and then we alternated between heavy, wet snow, ice and rain all winter.

Right now we have just finished 10 days of rain, clouds and gloom. We are already well above where we should be in both rain and snow metrics for the year and our rivers are above flood stage.

The photo above is my neighbor’s sugar maple.


This is my dogwood.

If our conditions continue to be this wet, we will be able to call ourselves a rainforest pretty soon!

    Only the West Coast of Oregon gets a lot of rain. Most of Oregon is chaparral like much of California is. It is pretty soggy on the coast though. . . very soggy in spots.

    That’s one part of the country that I have never seen (but would love to). I have been to 40 of our states, but my travel out west consists of Colorado, California from the bay area south and Hawaii. I have missed a lot of the most beautiful parts of our country.
