Summer Has Arrived!
The old adage that summer in Portland starts on July 5th really seems to be true. With temperatures in the 90's expected for this weekend, summer in the Rose City has officially arrived. How will you be spending the sunny days? Hiding in air conditioned comfort? Cooling off on the river? Whatever you do, make sure to protect yourself. Us Oregonians don't see the sun too often and sometimes we forget that it can be dangerous! Check out these tips from the Oregon Health Department

too. My co-worker Jim Ferretti was looking for a way to keep cool in the form of a backyard pool, but the store was sold out! So here is a list of Portland Public Pools
