Maybe the Times has finally run out of things to write about Portland.
ON the drive south from Neahkahnie Mountain toward Manzanita on the north coast of Oregon, the view is startling: broad cobalt skies above shaving-cream waves that ghost toward shore, all complemented by low, purple mountains that bulk in the distance.
The article gives a few real-estate tips to rich people, but then explains the Oregon phenomena of coastal storm watching:
In early winter, the rains arrive, and winter storms; the average annual rainfall is about 90 inches. Even so, many residents say they look forward to the storms and sit on the beach to watch them roll in.
That’s under a Cons subheading, so hopefully the Times audience doesn’t read too carefully and us locals will still be able to get a cheap place to stay on the coast during the winter.
