Why There Is No Better Place To Be Than Lake Oswego in the Summer

It’s almost officially summer and if you find yourself in Lake Oswego, consider yourself lucky. Why? Let me give you a few reasons.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME. If you lived in southern California, you’d be experiencing “June Gloom,” following “May Gray,” and sometimes followed by “No-Sky July” and “Fogust.” Despite what all the brochures say, southern California beaches are not always sunny. My daughters lived down there for a period of time and I never understood why vacationers flocked to the area during these months when good weather was less bankable than during other months. So no need to “wish” you were in sunny California because you’re lucky enough to be in Lake Oswego where the worst of our gloomy days are behind us and sunny days ahead. Having lived through Portland’s wettest spring in 81 years, I know you may be doubting me right now, but have faith.

NO HUMIDITY. New Orleans has a lot going for it, but if you find yourself there in June, prepare to sweat.  The chance that a given day will be muggy in New Orleans increases during June, rising from 75% to 95% over the course of the month. In contrast, Weatherspark gives Lake Oswego a 0% chance of being humid in June.  

BUG-FREE. South Carolina’s summer weather is a lure for humans seeking sand and sun, but it also attracts creepy crawlers like ants, spiders, cockroaches, lovebugs and mosquitoes who really thrive there. Hence, the screened-in porches you’ll see that enable South Carolinians to enjoy their summer nights without the summer bugs. No need for that here in Lake Oswego. For the most part, we can enjoy our summer nights bug-free.

OCCASIONAL (NOT DAILY) STORM. Florida may have beaches and sunshine but it also has almost daily summer storms and is considered the lightning capital of the United States. Here in Lake Oswego, we may get the occasional thunderstorm in the summer, but it’s not something you have to factor into your summer plans.

NO CROWDS. New York City is always crowded, but summer crowds beginning in June take it to a new level. If you like smelling other people’s armpits in a crowded subway, be my guest. But if you prefer your summer days to be more relaxed and filled with natural beauty instead of tourist sites, then consider yourself lucky to be in Lake Oswego.

So see?! No need to wish you were anyplace else than Lake Oswego in the summer.
