Return of the hawk

Just as Portland summers include days with east winds that make things hot and dry, Portland winters include days, and nights, with east winds that make things cold and dry. The coldest days of the year usually feature these winds.

I mention this because our old house doesn't stand up all that well to them, and so it's obvious when the cold version is blowing. The first of this year's chill gusts arrived this afternoon. They're nothing compared to what we'll get later, but it's clearly time to put away the shorts and break out the sweaters.

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
