Is apparently what we're having in Portland. All the news stations seem to be sharing this term, which they believe expresses the weather we are having, which they apparently feel resembles the arctic. While it is really nothing like the arctic, we do now have 8 inches of snow on the ground, with 30 inch drifts in places, a quarter inch of freezing rain on top of that, and either another half inch of freezing rain or several more inches of snow on the way overnight. Not to mention it's been over a week now that we've had snowy weather, which is totally unheard of.
Here are some pictures and videos from around our part of town from the past week or so. We're hunkering down for the rest of the day with coffee and movies. Cheers!
