The day I arrived in Portland I got to experience a double Portland rarity: a sub-freezing cold sunny winter day.
Not that it was all that cold in Portland by Columbus January standards. In Columbus, Ohio it's been in the teens for the past week. When I arrived in Portland the temperature was in the high 20's. But then I wasn't arriving from Columbus; I was arriving from Los Angeles,
But the cold weather didn't keep us inside. At least not until the sun turned to rain and the rain turned to ice and I missed my plane and as I write this I'm still here in Portland, already a day late getting back to Columbus, though I hope to be able to catch a plane by tomorrow.
But that's tomorrow's story.
As we had about an hour to kill before our movie, we decided to walk around downtown for a bit.
Fortunately we passed a Ross Dress For Less store, where I was able to pop inside and purchase some long undies which I put on in a dressing room before venturing outside again.
