Star Wars - Fly away...

The right response to cold weather

The cold's reached Portland.

This foggy morning, our low was in the high 30s. Feels like it got cold here relatively quickly.

It was a "go out for nice ramen" kind of cold, which is convenient because that's what I did today. After I wandered Central Eastside — and checking a new 10-story office building and parking garage going up at SE Stark St. and Water Ave., in a surprisingly tight lot but they'll make it work — I had a seriously good pork ramen for lunch at Marukin Ramen, a relatively new restaurant here I'd been meaning to get to. I then bussed downtown, and browsed Powell's City of Books as I sometimes do, but hadn't done for a while. Plus I wandered downtown in part to remind myself that I am in a big city, which I don't always see.
