The Storm of the Century...

Okay, so it might not have been the storm of the century, but it was enough to shut down Portland, Ore. for an entire week. Sure, the 8-12 inches of snow that covered the city streets paled in comparison to the 30+ inches my hometown in Montana received over the same time period, but when the Metro area is only used to 1-2 inches, that extra white stuff causes quite a ruckus. That’s right, I just said “ruckus.”

Streets shut down, cars were snowed in, and businesses stayed closed. Schools started their winter vacations early forcing many parents to work from home. It was Frank’s first serious taste of what the Northwest is capable of. And even though winter storms of this magnitude don’t hit the city that often, when they do, they do so with tenacity.

(A table for two?)

Thank you for reading the thoughts of Lucas.
