After some very cold weather last month things have now gotten wet. Very wet. Streets throughout the city are flooded, we’ve seen at least one closure due to a landslide, and of course as a result traffic is even crazier than usual.
So, how are you holding up out there?
Here are a few of the latest updates on road conditions…
Let's just say that was a 💦💦💦 ride into work this morning. Huge puddle on N Vancouver coming into Moda Center. @BikePortland @go_by_bike

Hey Portlanders, it is a legit mess out there. Flooding everywhere. Lots of deceptive ponding. And people driving like jerks. Be careful.

We know from past experience that many of you are not deterred by the rain.
Are your DIY rain-proofing hacks working? What about that spendy new rain jacket and pants you invested in? Or have you just given up and hopped in a car or transit?
There’s talk of a big rally tomorrow (Tuesday) night to celebrate the Timbers MLS Cup win. If you plan to be there on a bike, do you have some tips to share about dealing with this wet weather?
