The biggest problem with Black Mold is people framing up a house in the rainy season and then enclosing it. They wind up tearing down a new house and rebuilding.

At least that's the way it was before the Californication where the rainy season was replaced with a smoke season.

I rarely see any SP2, didn't even remember when was the last time I saw one, yet once in a while I still see a Puma.

Sounds more like Arizona's folk but could be from ELcentro or Mojave desert. Anything less that 80 degrees and they are physically cold.

We have quite a few Pacific Islanders in our Portand plant. They will wear insulated Carhartt bib overalls in the summer.

It depends on what you are used to

i actually moved from arizona to oregon. believe it or not, arizonians like chilly weather. thats why flagstaff is such a huge tourist town. arizonians also have a fascination with rain. they love it. californians hate rain, but arizonians romanticize it. so many arizona people move to oregon and washington and constantly are amazed at the fog and rain and how pretty it is


then again, arizonians wear jackets all the time. especially the teens, regardless of temperature. go near a high school and youll see black hoodies when its 120 outside...

I'm curious how long you have been in Oregon because it is very humid here for half the year during the rainy season. Summers are dry of course but the winter is very damp and humid. Moss will grow on cars if they are left parked outside. Mold will grow in your house if you don't regulate the inside humidity.

Inside you do need a dehumidifier if you don't have a furnace that also removes moisture. When we went from a forced air furnace to a ductless heat pump we had to add a dehumidifier. We pull about 3 gallons of water out of the air a day keeping our 1000 sq ft house at 60% humidity.

Birmingham, AL has an average humidity of 70%. Portland, OR has an average humidity of 73% (with 3 months above 80%)

Birmingham


Portland

I rode a tour bus through West Eugene once (I think maybe the Country Fair bus was on detour), and all the out-of-state people were commenting on the living roofs of houses under the tree canopy.

"Why don't they clean their roofs?"
