Seth grew up in a house located on about 40 acres in the middle of a forest near the coast of southwest Oregon. The climate there is actually very much like a rainforest. While most San Diegans complain at the mere sight of a grey cloud, Seth suggests going on walks in “real weather.” “But, it’s raaiiining,” I’ll whine. “What, are you afraid you are going to melt?” He will kid.
One of the things Oregonians do to deal with their rainy weather is build personal school bus stops at the end of their driveway. I know what you’re thinking, “Whoa, the bus picks them up at the end of their driveway?” I grew up back east and had to walk to the bus stop IN THE SNOW at 6:45 a.m. for a 45 minute ride to school. Oh, bless rural Pennsylvania. These Oregonians, and by Oregonians I mean Seth, think they are so tough!* They get to wait for their bus stop in a little shed of sorts to protect them from the elements.
This one in particular caught my eye:
Then I looked inside. AHHH! How would you like this little guy staring at you while you waited for the bus every morning?
And he has friends:
Uh, I’ll take my snowy walks in the dark to my bus stop anyday over that little shelter.
*Seth is actually very tough.
