It's been raining here a lot.
This is not unusual; it is the Pacific Northwest, after all, and January. But after a week of fairly steady warm rain and mist and frequent visitations of the pineapple express, it turned cold. I actually like the warm rainforest type rain we usually have, but on occasion it shifts to a brutally cold, hard steady rain with wind. It was like that, and my partner started reminiscing about Alpines; hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps.
