    The eclipse is a must see! I saw the one here in ’79 on the Warm springs Indian res. Saw the one in Kona Hawaii in ’91. I’ve never been the same since! The ones I saw occurred in the early morning right after sunrise. August should be perfect. The one here in 79 was in mid winter and you had to be east of the mountains to see it. Truly amazing!

      I vividly remember that. It was amazing as a kid to watch the street lights come on as it got dark. I lived in Oregon City at the time near Taylor and 7th street. I can hardly wait for this one lol! Yup, still a kid here!

      I was less than a month old for that one. My parents drove out to somewhere around Arlington, but I’m told I slept through it. Can’t wait for the next one! 🙂

    World record wind speed from Mt. Washington falls.

    No longer does Mt. Washington hold the record of 231mph.
    The Aussie’s have beat us out at over 250mph.

    Very dark clouds appeared to my west and now raining here in Hillsboro. No thunder or hail, but sure does look like it in my view. Darkest since the last time we had thunderstorms on November 11th 2009.

      It’s raining here in NW Portland too. Raining fairly hard, in fact.

      Though I think the darkness of the clouds is as much due to them being in the way of weak late afternoon sun as much as any cloud thickness.

      There’s really not much shower activity on the NWS radar this evening, but most of it seems to be in the west half of the PDX metro area.
