HAHA yeah I hear ya. Plus when I first came to Oregon and heard someone say "its raining" what I saw was "mist" did you ever feel like they over intensified the magnitude of rain? I would tell friends "thats not rain, its spiting......Relentless never ending spiting!"
lol...yea and how the whole world shuts down on a light dusting of snow. What really got me is when I first came here it was summer and their were warnings on TV that said "Drink water, stay in shade ect" because it was going to be 86 degrees. I asked my fiance if they were kidding. 96?!?! That was 4 am in Fresno in the summer lol. I like it here much better than Fresno though. I say it feels innocent here but they think its like the biggest gangland there is. They don't know what ganglands are like...no way.
