Today is the first day of Spring. And thanks heavens. It’s been a long, long winter on the Oregon Coast. It’s been a long winter a lot of places, it seems.
Most years, I don’t mind the winters here in Lincoln City. Yes, we get an average of 97.27 inches of rain per year (according to Wikipedia, which also thinks we have an average high temperature in August of 72 degrees [I wish—we’re about 10 degrees cooler than that], so allow for a little wiggle room). And yes, the wettest months of the year are November through March. But we usually get some spectacular sun breaks amid the deluge. This year, however, it’s been unrelentingly rainy and gray.
So, like I said, come on Spring. Please.
