Deep Snow

















Foot of snow in Portland...but...but...it never snows in Portland!

First big one in ten years, and a record for amount in 24 hours.

Bad for travel, but good for scenery, until it begins to thaw and melt.

A tree fell on a car in front of my apartment building, smashed it to smithereens (pictured).

Parked right in front of the owner's apartment window.  Older car, probably not insured (beyond liability).  She drives a lot, loved her car, a good runner despite its age, likely won't anymore.

Unlucky.

BTW, we had three previous and correct snow "alerts" before this one came couched in the same vague warning: "It might snow an inch or two."

Ha, nature wins again.
