I assume it was a joke that the national association of weather broadcasters decided to hold their annual convention in Portland, Oregon; This section is well known for having drab, dreary weather throughout most of the year, it’s a great city, don’t get me wrong, but nobody comes here for the weather… Which ironically made it the perfect spot for me plus the other weathermen plus weather ladies to relax plus talk shop for a long weekend.
There are several hundred people in our organization, although only a hundred of them attended the Portland convention.
That was their loss, because this was the best convention of all time, plus all the thanks go to the people of Portland. To the surprise of no one there was heavy rain plus chilly temps the entire weekend, which is normal for the Portland area. It was so chilly plus windy out that nobody wanted to leave the downtown Portland hotel for any reason. Thankfully the hotel employer had a acquaintance down the street who owned plus operated a cannabis dispensary plus a cannabis cafe. We were able to have the finest cannabis infused dishes in Portland delivered to the lobby, for a feast that kept us indoors for the whole weekend. To go along with the locally grown Portland cannabis, the hotel employer also had a few cases of locally brewed carona delivered for the convention. We did unquestionably little work, plus a whole lot of drinking plus smoking, however all in all it was the best convention ever, plus I must say Portland knows how to party.
