To start the blog off, I thought I would begin with what is sure to be a riveting regular post – a weather update. I spent the past six months explaining to people in Portland that I want to live somewhere with stupidly, life threateningly cold winters and sweaty, miserable summers. No one got it. I’m meteorologically misunderstood.
My plan is to periodically check the weather in Portland and compare that to the weather in Chicago. To make this an exercise worth doing, I’m also going share how I feel about the weather, and how John feels about the weather. In this way, I will scientifically prove to the world that the weather in Portland is inferior to the weather in Chicago.*
Now that you’re all pumped up, let do this!
*I will be using Cameron’s Scientific Weather Agreeability Scale (CSWAS) in which a rainy day is rated as a -1, and any other day is rated as a 10. Although some could argue that this scale is neither scientific nor fair, I would argue that they are dumb. Also, they are not allowed to comment on the blog. Get your own blog, you soggy, galoshes-wearing, season-hater.
**John says that overcast means the whole sky is covered with what looks like one big white thing, and partly cloudy means there are some clouds. I’m not sure he respects the fine art of meteorology the way he should.
