↑ Upside

  • Justifies the existence of otherwise useless mudrooms
  • Injects morning commutes with 200 percent more dashing
  • Significantly raises chances of a first-act meet-cute
  • Free, eco-friendly car wash service for the lazy
  • Puddles fun to jump in, we guess
  • Excellent with roses; not unlike whiskers on kittens
  • Cheaper than sunscreen
  • Trees

↓ Downside

  • The mother-in-law of meteorological effects: overstays welcome by a lot
  • Despite PR efforts of Big Galosh, rain boots never cute
  • Somehow manages to make local drivers even worse
  • Excuse for long-timers to trot out “Portlanders don’t use umbrellas” line again
  • No one—no one—knows where it comes from
  • Could be snow if it tried a bit harder
  • You are probably the reason God is crying
  • Acid
