Rain, rain go away!

This week started out unbelievably beautiful. The days were sunny and warm.

Now reality has set in. The Oregonian's printed seven day forecast shows a graphic of clouds and rain on each day. What cracks me up is the descriptive phrase printed just above the graphic. I don't know if they get bored with simply using the word "rain" or if Oregonians just have more ways of talking about rain (like that apocryphal story about Eskimos having 17 words for snow.)

Friday: a little rain
Saturday: a shower
Sunday: rain, breezy
Monday: periods of rain
Tuesday: showers
Wednesday: showers around.
