97 whoopity la la I lived along the Columbia Riv. and it was TOO COLD!!! TOO WET, beautiful, but MISERABLE.
I almost made the same mistake. The area near Stevenson Washington began having landslides shortly after I decided not to move there.
when it's a damp cold here you need layers to keep warm. July 20th 2011 and I've had the AC on once this year.
