Chance of accumulation = 100%

There are predictions of another 6-10 inches of snow in the next 24 hours. Once the snow finishes falling, then a wave of ice rain is going to coat it all. I have a feeling I will be stuck here at home for a while. My car is parked in the parking lot of my complex, and the only way out is to navigate a hill. I am not hopeful that I can get out any time soon.

Took this pic of the snow just now with my UV lens. I like how it brought out the icey crystals and the blue hues :)

The snowmen are out

Driving the streets through town you often see the hard work of the kids that have been kept home from school all week. This little guy was waving his tree branch hands in the wind :)

More of the same

Its dumping snow again this morning. Last night it actually rained, so it melted away most of what was out there, but a fresh new layer fell to take its place.

More on the way (???)

So as of this morning, no new snow. For now, all thats left is ice!

But the Portland Public School system is closed in anticipation for a weather front heading our way. I just checked the doppler radar and sure enough, there is moisture over the westside of Portland. We are on the eastside, and it is heading our way. So we wait to see what happens.

Frozen Solid

And the cold weather continues. The main roads are pretty clear, but the side roads are a block of ice. Very hard to drive and get around. This is a picture of a puddle that froze solid. They are predicting more snow starting as early as later tonight. Is it summer yet?

Snow Day

We ended up getting just about an inch of snow where I live, but on the other side of Gresham I have heard they got 3-6 inches. Just enough to make the roads icy and all the schools closed today, which means I did not go to work either. I hope it clears up enough that I can drive tomorrow. Although, they are predicting we get hit with snow again Weds and Sat. :( I have not even come close to finishing my Christmas shopping. And now I am stuck at home!!!
