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.
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.
