WOW, I've never seen anything so ominous in all my days - sure tells you what's coming.

One can understand how the ancients saw malevolent gods in nature when a cloud can have a face as distinct as that. The only thing I've seen that is at all similar is a couple of shots of the mushroom clouds from the Nevada nuke tests - there were some devils faces in them, appropriately enough.

As long as you're viewing it from shore, the Oregon coast is one of the most spectacular places on Earth.

Actually, now that I think about it, that pretty well applies to the ENTIRE Pacific coast of North America with the possible exception of SoCal.

That's truly the most amazing weather I've ever seen. I sure see that evil face.

Indeed. Heck, the Columbia River and the Gorge are pretty darned spectacular. In fact, Oregon is spectacular - has a little bit of everything to offer.

Now for a little honesty about the PNW.
35 knots, raining, 50F, June.


Beautiful mountains if you could ever see them. June, July, they're all the same.


Not my picture, from Seeyalatermoonglow. Self explanatory. Probably June.


Normal day, could be any month of the year.


Miserable place to visit, just miserable.
