This is the wettest December in Portland since records have been kept, starting October, 1940. We’ve had over 13.5 inches so far this month.
That’s a lot of rain. The sun came out for a couple hours yesterday, it felt like a holiday. A new storm front comes in tonight, so every drop that falls, – and there’ll be plenty – will be a record-setter.
Yes, this is the Pacific Northwest, so we expect a lot of rain, but this is excessive.
Meanwhile, the snowpack is building fast, and that’s good, both for the skiers/ boarders, and for the water next Spring/Summer. But hey, we need a break.
