One of the strangest thing here in Oregon that I’ve found is that all the air conditioned premises are very cold. And it is not just the nice-and-dry comfortable cold. It is a freeze-my-butts-off cold, that makes you put on sweater or jumper after staying indoor for more than five minutes!
Why the hell do the Oregonian need to be that cold in the summer? One of my work colleague jokes that the cold AC remains them of winter! Funny but not when one considers how much energy the state consume to keep all these offices and shopping malls cold each summer. No wonder California has energy crisis each summer. I guess Oregon does not have energy crisis because they do not have as large a population as their southern neighbor.
