My APOLOGIES to Oregon...
Well, Oregon residents; I think I owe you an apology. Over the years, I have collectively accumulated about 3 weeks in your beautiful state. I was visiting my distributors and training their sales personnel how to market my product line. Everyone that I met was very nice. I am from Georgia and they found my voice to be "interesting" and "entertaining". It is a beautiful state and I have traveled up and down the coastal side in numerous trips in various rental cars.
Every mile that I have ever driven in Oregon involved my using the windshield wipers! Every mile - no joke! I thought to myself and mentioned to others, that Oregon would be a dreary place to live. The thing about Atlanta weather is if you don't like it, simply wait for a day or two and it will be different. In my years of living here, I've seen temps up to 104*F and down to -16*F. Those are the extremes, but we always hit close to 100*F in the summers and 15-20*F in the winters. You can get a sunburn in February or it might be too cold for the GroundHog to surface. You often will wear clothing in layers - so that parts can be removed as the temps rise, and if you stay late at your office, you may need to put some of those clothing layers back on.
Well, here where I live it has rained for 17 days straight. We keep looking-out the windows for sightings of animals walking in pairs. And yes, it has been dreary. So, PORTLAND; I apologize for things I have said - y'all do have some awesome trees and people! By the way, that distributor customer of mine was the biggest of all of our customers world-wide! They routinely ordered train-car-loads of my concrete forms. Thank you, Portland; I now understand why many of you do not use umbrellas!
