This dark and lovely gif by artist Nancy Liang* perfectly depicts the rain storms we've had running through the Portland area the past two days. As I type this it's still howling like a banshee out there. Last night it sounded like the whole house was going through a car wash.
And then the lights went out. I think the storm wanted us to appreciate how truly fierce it really was.
