2013 was a really dry year for Oregon. Climate scientists at Oregon State University say it was the driest on record for Eugene despite a soggy September.

Deputy Director of the Oregon Climate Service at OSU Kathie Dello says Eugene saw less than half of its normal precipitation this year. Dello says September brought a lot of rain but not enough to make up for the rest of the year. The snow-storm in early December was very dry. Dello spoke by cell from a ski trip in the Cascades.

In the pouring rain last night at Autzen Stadium, The University of Oregon walloped California 55 to 16.  The game was essentially decided in the first quarter, when several Cal mistakes allowed the Ducks to open up a 27-0 lead.  The rain caused miscues and turnovers on both sides.  Oregon fumbled once – it was the first turnover by the ducks the entire season.

Oregon State was also victorious yesterday at home, defeating Colorado 44 to 17.  It was a day for the record books for Beaver quarterback Sean Mannion, who threw six touchdown passes and set a school record.
