Well, that happened to me when I was digging through the records on rainy & cool July days.
I discovered that if you’re getting married in Portland or Salem during the summertime–do not plan an outdoor wedding on July 12th!
Cool days happen from time to time in July. Wet days happen time to time in July–even though it’s our driest month of the year. But the odds of the same day each year being cool & wet is super low.
And that’s where the weird trend for July 12th comes in: 4 of the last 6 years, that day has been either the coolest day of July or the wettest day of July. Sometimes both. That’s 67% of the time for six years running.
Is it because the mother ship is landing? Or, perhaps the government is controlling the weather, after all? Hmmm.
Whatever the reason–it’s a strange trend that no other days in July are showing. So if you’re getting married next July–don’t do it on the 12th.
At least not without getting a good deal on tents.
