PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Well, it had to happen sometime.

A brief – but powerful – fall storm moved through the Portland metro area Saturday afternoon, bringing a quarter inch of rain and peak wind gusts around 30 miles per hour.

Some places along the Oregon Coast saw even more wind, with peak gusts upwards of 50 miles per hour.

But almost as quickly as the downpour started, it was over.

That was okay with 3-year-old Aleya Ramirez.

Saturday, she was picking pumpkins at Lake View Farms in North Plains.

“We brought blankets and extra jackets,” her mother Anita Kilton told Fox 12.

“Once the rain started I looked out and checked the ticket booth and we had a line out there,” Lake View Farms owner Kelley Croppe said.  “People were still coming even with the rain, because we live in Oregon so we're used to that."

The storm meant some visitors brought rain boots and umbrellas.  But the gray skies cleared up enough for a bit of blue to peek through.

“Everybody was still smiling and happy,” she added.  “They'd come in a little wet so we got a little full in our building as people were checking out, but nobody seemed to be upset or grumpy about it."
