Well, Portland got the snow storm we were all waiting for. Unfortunately (if you get excited about snow days like I do), it came and went like a thief in the night.
It was about midnight when I grabbed my camera and rolled through the neighborhood. There was about an inch or two of snow on the ground and, while I hoped it would stay until morning, I had a feeling it would be gone.
Sure enough, by the time the morning commute rolled around, all that was left was one pile of slush after another (as evidenced by this video posted by The Oregonian’s Joe Rose).
It was fun (and beautiful!) while it lasted.
I hope you got a chance to enjoy the fluffy white stuff. If you didn’t, and you are jonesing to try out your ziptied tires, I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of it.
