Yesterday was the first cloudy day we've had in nearly two weeks. That is a RARITY in Portland.
When I asked my students in Korea to share their favorite holiday, nearly all of them said fall.
Summer of course, is the best season, I thought to myself.
But then I lived through a summer in Busan, with its sticky humidity, obnoxious cicadas and ever present mogis (mosquitos).
Finally September came, providing the relief of cooler but still warm weather, the absence of humidity, and sunshine every day.
As an Oregonian this is unheard of. Sunshine? Once summer is gone the sun goes with it, and in its place: rain.
But not this year.
Ryan and I have missed three years of fall in Portland and this city is trying hard to win us back by giving us the most beautiful October I can remember.
I think I found my new favorite season.
