Unlike the uninspiring launch of Microsoft Vista, the weather in Portland has been a huge “wow”. Everyone told me how horrible the winter was going to be — I really expected it to rain non-stop from November to June.
Instead, it’s been warm, dry and sunny for more than a week. I keep a couple Dashboard widgets on my Mac to check out the weather here and back in Chicago. And while Portland’s been trying to break into the 50s, Chicago’s been sporting snow and subzero temperatures. Fantastic!
