Weekend Weather Update

Sunday, December 02, 2007
So, while the inches of snow that we were promised failed to materialize this weekend, I was still out in the elements quite a lot. Teaching on Saturday was an exercise in layering and chemical hand-warmers as temperatures were low and snow was falling - though it never really really stuck.

Teaching Sunday was an entirely different matter. While I'm no stranger to rain, it was coming down like God hated me. Everyone and everything outside got absolutely soaked - myself included. Standing out in the cold, drenching rain for seven hours was an exercise in mental and physical stamina.
The list of clothes that were soaked:
3 jackets (all "water-resistant" or better)
2 long sleeve shirts
2 pairs jeans
1 pair long underwear
5 pairs socks
2 pairs gloves (one labeled "waterproof")
1 hat
1 pair boots
Just about the only waterproof thing I saw all weekend was the paper we were writing on! Yes, at TEAM OREGON we don't cancel classes... ever.

And before anyone says anything: as an Oregonian, the rain doesn't stop me. That doesn't mean I won't complain about it, though!
