What's the weather really like in Eastern Oregon? Contemplating a move to the Umatilla area, perhaps a bit south. Maybe riding /driving to Walla Walla to work. Yeah, it's about an hour, i know. But all i see is on the boob tube is Portland and rain all the time. Is Eastern Oregon like that, too? my passion is riding. Currently live an hour from the Colorado Rocky Mountains so i know good riding. Thank y'all for the information. I figger (born and bred in the deep south) the best people to know a region are fellow motorcyclists. Ain't afraid of rain but my wife doesn't like it a bit.
