Is The Universe Trying To Tell Us Something?

It rains in Portland. A lot. We knew that. We were prepared for that. But nothing could have prepared us for the bleeping blizzard we’ve been experiencing since our arrival here on Sunday. We haven’t been able to leave the house since then, due to the snow, or ice, or both. We’ve depended on the kindness of our neighbors who’ve provided us with food when our pantry turned up only two packs of mac and cheese and a can of guava paste. Fortunately, we’ve been supremely busy with the unpacking and therefore memories of warm winters in California haven’t quite resurfaced yet.
