Days are getting shorter as we head towards December 21st. Today the sun rose at 7:14 am, and it set at 4:36 pm. Speaking with my brother in Austin today, realized his day was going dark at the same time ours was in Portland. But he's several hours ahead of us. Ouch.
The rain has been unrelenting, and Wink doesn't even want to go out in it. For a brief moment the rain paused today, and out we went for a walk around the soggy, squishy wet neighborhood.
The towels are stationed at both doors, ready to towel off a wet dog prior to re-entry into the house. The raincoats are hung in the basement landing. Shoes come off and slippers go on. We're back into the routines of wet Northwest winters.
It's snowing in the mountains. I hope we get some snow in Portland this year.
