How wet does it get in western Oregon?

This wet:

Mailbox

My mom sent this photo, taken on 9 March. Yes, that is moss growing on the fronts and legs of the mailboxes, and on the pavement beneath. The green stuff on the sides is probably mold, though I think I see some moss growing on the arched metal at the top sides.

I’m guessing folks in western Oregon are reeeallly ready for spring…so perhaps now isn’t a good time to mention that I’m sitting on my kitchen veranda in shorts and a t-shirt, barefoot.

    Pah! It’s still cool here on the OR coast, but the sun is shining this morning, and no wind. And come July when you are sweltering and longing for a breath of cool air, we will be reveling in perfect warm weather. So there.
    Maybe the photo simply illustrates how little use the USPS drop boxes get these days.

  2. It’s been pretty nice in Corvallis this past week, sunny and warm, though cooler last couple days. Only serious rain was Sat. Night-Sun. early morning. And October through January were eerily dry… everyone was getting antsy for rain. February apparently mostly made up for the deficit in the northern and central part of the state, but the south is facing serious drought this summer. Can’t recall anyone complaining about Feb. rains… we didn’t just need it, we *wanted* it!
