Okay, we get it!

We get it. It's really winter in Portland. There's no need to do anything else to prove that fact to us, honest there isn't!

We got between three and four inches of snow here today, which isn't much by, say, Boston standards, but is a LOT for two folks who got used to what passed as winter in northern California. As the pictures show, we found ourselves in a literal winter wonderland today.

I went out when it stopped snowing, armed with a broom and wearing a pair of snow boots I unearthed from the closet in our guest bedroom, and cleared all of the snow off my car. Luckily, it's very dry, light snow, so it wasn't hard to get the car cleaned off. Now I'm wondering what the road will be like tomorrow....
