I called Columbia (the employee store is close to where we live) to make an order and when I gave him my address he said “get out- you’re from Portland? Do you know it’s snowin’ on Mt. Hood right now?” We then chatted for a while about the ski conditions. This was such a quintessential Portland experience. Number 1: it’s pouring rain right now and everyone is happy because it’s snowing on hood. Number 2: He was in no hurry to put in my order…people are so friendly and laid back here. I love my new city.
