Overnight Tuesday/into Wednesday of last week, the Portland area was hit with a record snowstorm – we got more than a foot of snow. It’s the heaviest snowfall since 1995, and it was pretty exciting (and, ultimately, debilitating). My workplace was either closed or operating with a late opening or an early closing through the weekend, and the university where Nat works, which never closes, has been closed due to the weather three days since the storm. We had a fun time for the first couple days, walking all over (thanks, ICEtrekkers!). But the roads have been really bad and we got so tired of staying in the house that we spent Sunday night in a hotel room downtown, laying in a comfy bed (Cody, too) and taking baths and eating donuts. Now it’s warmer and raining a ton, so the snow’s finally starting to break up and melt. We’re crossing our fingers it doesn’t lead to terrible flooding.
