It’s the first snow of the season!
I’m writing from North Portland and we’ve got a blanket of the white stuff on our streets and yards. Our neighbor and friend Allan Folz (in photos above) was riding home from the store and got caught in the unexpected flurry. It seemed like this snow was a bit unexpected and I have a feeling lots of folks left home on their bikes this morning without expecting it would be a slushy ride home.
Feel free to share the weather report from your part of town… and let us know what type of two-wheeled snow adventures you’ve got planned (
I hope some of you are still planning to go on the Downtown Neon Light Ride tonight! update: ride has been cancelled).
Here are a few more photos (full gallery here, see updates below):
— 3:30pm: The Oregonian says the snow should turn into rain later tonight. But as of right now it’s still dropping big flakes in North Portland.
— 4:40pm: Just returned for a foray around North Portland/I-5 area. Still snowing hard. It was hard to see without goggles. Lots of snow accumulation on the ground. See full photo gallery here.
