It's usually rainy and about 45 degrees in the winter. It doesn't pour rain here, it just tends to "spit" a lot. The biggest issue Californians tend to have is the gray skies during the winter. We don't get a lot of sunny days from Nov-Feb.

It snows in Salem every 3 years or so. We don't get tornados here. We have wind and ice storms. Wind storms seem to occur every 2-3 years, and inevitably part of the city loses power for a day or so. Ice storms tend to occur every winter. We have black ice here regularly, and get an ice storm which leaves a thick layer of ice on the roads, so no one can go anywhere. They don't salt the roads here.
