“We’re in the 8th Circle of Hell…
We’d never really been outside of Oregon very much, we wanted to leave the rain in Eugene.
Winters are beautiful but summer here is like… ugh! A hundred degrees at midnight.

105 is the record breaking temperature in Eugene. It got up to like 120 here and I literally thought I had crawled inside an oven. It took my breath away.
Back there you could jump in the water and it would be like 50 degrees.
Here, it’s like bathtub water.”
