Believe it or not, it snowed for 5 hours straight this morning. In Portland! We have about 3 inches of snow. They cancelled school for the day and a lot of businesses are shut down. You Mid-Westerners may now all laugh uproariously at the silly Oregonians who can’t drive in snow. I know I did.
Except that it really is ice/snow on the roads and the roads here do not go straight and level. You can be fine drive along a street here in town when suddenly you will need to climb a hill or turn a corner and you have NO TRACTION. So, I will stay home and be crafty and take the dogs for a walk. They rarely see snow so they don’t quite know what to think about it. Abe and Keegan spent about 10 minutes inhaling the stuff this morning trying to figure out what it was. Then they just went back to their normal activities (hunting for squirrels, hunting for cats, hunting for cat poo, barking at the mailman).
