Only in Portland! I saw tons of cars ticketed on my street and thought some dick put up temp signs during the day and gave out tickets. Now I kind of want to go steal one still on a car…

Tots came to sit with me on the porch this evening because it was another gorgeous day and you gotta take advantage before it starts to rain again.

Does PDX really not get much snow? I assumed u did, not that I spent much time thinking about it hah

Not at all! We usually get a lot of rain but it’s been a really dry winter. Higher elevations in the hills around Portland will get some snow but nothing too bad. It’s usually more freezing fog or ice that is a problem. Portland is pretty low in elevation so usually if there is snow, it will have a hard time accumulating. We got about 6 inches (which is nothing for this NH girl but it’s more like multiple feet for Portland) where I am, close to downtown and there are expecting more later today.

All the schools are closed along with the government buildings downtown and there are asking people to stay home. Buses are still going, slowly and with chains, and they put deicer on the bridges in preparation but there isn’t much more Portland can do.

No complaints! I’ll take the snow day!

SNOW DAY!! Look at how cute our porch looks with snow on it!

Max’s first snow! She did not enjoy the cold stuff on her feet. Benny wouldn’t even let me get him out the door. I don’t know what I expected from my SoCal born and raised cats.

Portland is basically calling it quits in preparation for the storm that is starting. My office actually let us out early and I am home by lunch.

Here is a picture of Mill Ends Park (aka smallest park in the world) that I got to stare at for a few minutes while waiting in traffic on my drive home. I am going to thoroughly enjoy this snow day!

Snowing in Portland!

It’s really coming down in nice big flakes but unfortunately the ground isn’t cold enough for it to stick.
