So Portland got snow. I had already taken the day off for other reasons so I got to sleep in with out guilt. As a previous Midwesterner I always feel guilty taking a snow day when Portland freaks out because of ice and snow. However I live on a hill. With enough snowfall it becomes impossible to get out of my neighborhood. I really like this type of snowfall. Big fat fluffy flakes that pile up quick and make every thing pretty but its juuust warm enough that it mostly melts off as soon as the sun comes out. No months of snow that gets that dirty gray color. Just a bit of slushy wet then wet pavement. Tada.
