...Or more accurately, icy roads day!! Yesterday it rained all day and then got to snowing a bit and now we're at 24 degrees. And it's not going to get much warmer than that today. Which means all our roads are icy and our whole city shuts down.

People are always balking at how Portlanders can't drive in the snow and how we "freak out" if we get even the tiniest bit of frozen precipitation but our city is not meant for snow. It's a giant winding pile of hills. Plus, I secretly believe that we all just love the idea of grown up snow days and an excuse to not go anywhere and just hide away and be cozy for a day so much that none of us are willing to admit we possibly could pull off driving. Which is just another reason I love this city so much.
