Snow Day

We have been hearing on the news/weather here for days about the big storm headed our way and that it was going to dump 4-6 inches of snow on us. Now in comparison to the snowfalls in places like Chicago, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Detroit and the like, that’s not a big deal, but for Portland it’s a lot and things pretty much shut down here. We got up this morning to this: (click to enlarge)

 

It’s very light, dry snow, but at 31 degrees it’s sticking on the ground and makes a pretty picture. This will melt later today, then freeze tonight. Could be pretty icy tomorrow.

Also, the bookshelves are almost done. I may or may not have a Friday Forgotten Book for tomorrow, need to finish the book today and the new shelves are calling. Look for a bookshelves part II post tomorrow or Saturday.

    Not deep here, either, but I managed to fishtail several times driving down residential streets. Also won $190 at the casino. Added to the $75 last time I’m about even again.

  2. Big Storm…4 to 6 inches! Surely you jest. It takes over a foot of snow to qualify as a Big Storm in these parts.

    Yeah George, I know, but as I said in the post, for Portland it’s a lot. We only get one or two of these a year, it’s mostly rain here.

    we’re getting 4-6 on top of 3 and on top of 12. Where on earth will we put it?

  5. Richard says:

    When it melts it will cause plenty more troubles.

  6. Washington, D.C. gets much less snow, Patti.

    They say it might snow in San Francisco–the first time in 35 years.
