The rain of Oregon is no comparison to Oklahoma

Here in Oregon we are known for the land of wetness, but overall the rain is welcoming at times.  As the rain poured down yesterday, Skylar and I couldn't help but feel a little bit shameful for being upset that it was raining.  Currently in Oklahoma there are so many people that would be thankful for just a bit of rain over what they are dealing with and/or have dealt with the last few days.  I can't imagine the pain, stress, and overall misery that many are feeling down south.  So as we sat and watched the rain pour down, our hearts are broken for those in Oklahoma.  

The rain of Oregon is no comparison to Oklahoma



We donated to help the cleanup efforts, recovery efforts, and health and wellness of those that have survived that tornado destruction in Oklahoma.  You can do you part too. Click the "Donate Now" option below to give through the Red Cross Disaster Relief.



 So as we sit and watch the rain fall here in Oregon, we are thankful that all we have to complain about is the rain.


Eco-Tip:  When throwing out kitchen scrap make sure you throw them into your compost pile.  This season your garden would love to have potato peels, lemon rinds, apple cores, etc.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
