November "First" Post

I'm committed to posting a blog entry each day in the month of November, like last year (and like several other family members). I recommend it if any of you want to get onboard.

It seems like November 1st is a turning point in the weather and seasons in NW Oregon. In October you still get Indian Summer, with a number of nice warm and sunny days. By November you are pretty much committed to late Autumn weather and the onset of the Pacific NW winter. There will still be some nice sunny days sprinkled throughout the coming months, but overcast and damp is the norm.
We do have some brilliant colors this time of year, though. Here is a shot outside my window at work from the other day.

For comparison, see similar shots in a post from last year.

Saturday morning, Suzanne and I went for a scenic drive near our home. Here are some pictures.

And here is looking outside our window Sunday morning.

I do like this time of year, in spite of the deteriorating weather and onset of darkness. I like the subdued atmosphere, and even the dampness and fog to an extent.


  1. Aaaahhhh I am so jealous this year. Last year, not so much. :(

  2. I enjoyed the drive taking the photos!
