Chris and I went walking out in the snow today. We certainly didn’t expect snow here, especially so early. For me, being so recently from California these many years, the powdery snow looks quite inviting!
Last night listening to the news, we learned the area is not that well prepared for snow. Last night it seemed like the whole of the cities of Portland and Vancouver were slipping and sliding! It was reported that today many businesses and schools were closed.
Fortunately for us, we bought chains yesterday. Nevertheless, rather than drive to the store this afternoon, we decided to walk.
It wasn’t nearly as cold as I thought it would be. The snow was already starting to melt despite the low temperature outside. It just hasn’t been that cold that long here for the snow to really stick. Nevertheless it was/is beautiful!
The news is that it will be staying cold the next few days, before it warms up next week. Everyone here I hear is looking forward to the return of more temperate rain!!
