Maybe I'd been downtown to browse/shop at Powell's Books which is only a few blocks east of this street, NW 13th Avenue. February 7, 2009, a Saturday. I took this photo at 3:46 p.m. and am amazed to see a shadow, to see a dry street and a dry sidewalk. Here's a bit about Portland's weather averages in February. The median cloud cover is 96% overcast and does not vary much during the month. The average probability that some form of precipitation will be measured on any given day in February is 66% and does not vary much during the month. Most common forms of precipitation are light rain and moderate rain. Easy to understand my surprise at finding a sunny February day.
