Rain, Rain Go Away!

No June Gloom in Oregon

It has been raining off and on it seems almost since the day I arrived.  There have been some really nice days and they were great but they have been few and far between.  But being from Southern California before I started fulltiming I guess I am just not used to this type of weather.  In So Cal June was always know as the “June Gloom“.  This was caused by a marine layer that would block out the sun.  But hardly any rain.  They don’t have a marine layer up here in OR, just a lot of rain clouds.

Even the birds stay inside

Today it even snowed on and off but melted once it hit the ground.  The colder weather sure has kept a lot of people away from the campgrounds.  There have been days when I only get one or two campers in here and only for one night.  Even the birds stay nestled in their forest apartments where it is probably nice and warm.

The forecast looks good for the next few days although it isn’t exactly warm.  Once the sun comes out daily I am sure there will be an abundance of flowers in this campground.

Let’s hope so anyway.

  1. Gee Jim – you have my sympathy. I visited that area when I was much younger. In my head, I realized it was so green because of all the rain and no blaring sun – but eek! I wither away without the sun. I’m a retired to Florida Granny and can’t travel much anymore, but I certainly enjoy ‘traveling’ with you. Keep it up! Pam

  2. Boy, Oregon and Washington have really been having the rain this year. We actually saw our first rain in months here in ID. And it’s way too cold for me. I want 80 degrees and sunshine with a light breeze. Good luck with that. But I can guarantee when the weather gets better, and it will, that your campground will be full and you’ll be wishing for quieter days.

  3. When we volunteered at Bonneville Dam in OR we had our choice of 3 months. We asked which months would have the best weather and so we picked Aug, Sept and Oct. Aug and Sept were wonderful, but the cold drizzly rain started in Oct and we couldn’t wait to get out of there! Hope things dry out and warm up soon.

  4. Morning Jim
    We’re on crescent Lake. Just cleaned the snow off the solar panels so you get no sympathy from here .


  5. If you’re going to have “June Gloom” you may as well let mother nature water the garden for you!! I do get tired of the rain but I would rather have that than 100 degree heat and humidity. Just wait, July will make it all better.

  6. Well, it’s 72 degrees and sunny in the afternoon here in Ca. My sister said it was 95 degrees and 87% humidity in Minnesota today. Could be worse for you, you could have Mn weather!
    I liked the flowers on the tree.

    Enjoy the solitude as it sounds like your weather will be improving.

  7. Jimbo I have heard that there is lots and lots of rain in Oregon. Sort of like Washington State. Hopefully the sun will come out and warm you up. We are having snow all day to day also here in Yellowstone NP where it is in the lower 40s. Burr. I have not been in shorts yet this summer.

    Have had some wonderful days in the upper 60 low 70 but not any really warm days yet. Here the summer is fantastic once it gets here.

    Take care, Debbie

  8. Very interesting posts Jim; I particularly enjoyed the photographs of the rain. Living here in the Sonoran Desert I don’t get to see much moisture…. unless it is in the pool, HA! Interesting too, was the cyclists that you met— WoW, what a story they will have to tell!

    Have fun and enjoy the peace and solitude while you can for I am certain that you are going to be very busy in the weeks ahead!

    I am anxiously looking forward to your next entry. Stay safe and God bless. 🙂
