mount hood with its whiten cone, is an anchor for the city. it can be seen most days, seemingly, floating in the air. long-time residents point to it reliably in the east.

in contrast mount st helens, with its flat top & noted for its rare appearances, causes everyone to look alertly to the northeast north.


expect morning fog & light showers today, one forecaster might cite. fog to fade by mid-day & showers to lighten by afternoon, all to be replaced by part cloud, part sun, & part diminished sky.

expect seasonal humidity & little variance in temperatures or temperaments.
