December Snow 2008
Photos taken between Sunday the 21st and Tuesday the 23rd in Portland, Oregon
The news people say this was the biggest snowfall in Portland since 1968 or something like that. They are always referencing various records that have been broken; it’s hard to know exactly what each one means, but I can definitely testify that this is the most snow I’ve ever seen in town. The snow storm lasted almost two weeks, I’m pretty sure, and even though it’s raining now when I’m writing this (on the day after Christmas) the snow will certainly stay around for at least a few more days. In fact, I’m sure some of the snow that people or machines have piled up on the sides of roads, driveways and parking lots will still be in evidence two weeks from now. Over the course of the last week or so I took a few photos. Hope you enjoy them.
