More Winter Wonderland

Original isn't it!?

Today we chained up and headed to downtown Portland for the OBT's The Nutcracker.

The roads were interesting...........some areas bare and dry, other areas with snow wafting across it and still other areas of drifts. In downtown, the main roads we were on had not been plowed.

185th, just up the street from where we live.

Entrancing onto Hwy 26.

Downtown Portland, just exiting onto Market Street.

PSU looks lovely in white. This was just a quick photo opportunity, so it's not the best.

Robert had to pull over while we were still in Portland before heading home, to clear the ice off of the windshield wipers. This church was our view.

On the way home it was getting worse, with visibility about 100 feet or so at some points. Kim has decided she doesn't like riding with chains on. I think it upsets her tummy too much.

I think we are content to stay home now.

Wow...I can't even imagine Portland still being covered in that much snow! I agree, stay home for awhile. Hope it lets up soon for you guys!

note...part of my "word verification" is "cold" I think blogger knows something :)

You're a braver woman than I am! When there's snow, I don't go. And the world is a safer place for not having my terrifed, inept driving skills on display. Hope the ballet was splendid!
