My wife has a term she coined to describe a certain type of light near sunset. The sun will suddenly break through a crack in the clouds and illuminate everything in the foreground while the scene in the distance will remain under the gloom. It is a scene we saw very often when we lived in Portland and even though we've lived in Seattle for over eight years, we still refer to it by it's original name. No matter what we are doing or where we are, when that sun pops out of nowhere, one of us screams, "Oregon Light."
