Growing up in Oregon you get use to the weather. You eventually normalize the grey skies, rain and lack of sunshine. Luckily when growing up, every other year my family and I would fly down to Mexico in the winter to visit relatives. I strongly remember the climate differences. Flying into sunshine was delightful as was the warmth and the colorful topiary that comes with sunny weather. Winters in Oregon weather bearable with planned vacations, indoor sports activities and as I was older winter sports in the snow.
