“Winter is Coming”
We’re deep into October. If you’re like me, you spent the summer blissfully basking (and baking) in the sun, never entertaining a thought of the coming winter.
But Autumn’s got me feeling like Ned Stark. Y’all know the line.
If you’ve lived in Portland for any amount of time, you’re well aware of our exceedingly long rainy season. Hell, some of you may enjoy it, love it even! But for most of us, the lack of UV radiation, colder temperatures, and shorter days can be a bummer– SAD is the clinical term. So, how are you prepping for the seasonal shift? What gets you through?
As we get closer to winter, I’ll be reporting back with some of my favorite ways to survive this city’s bleakest days.
