SNOW DAY! Mt. Hood, Most of Oregon Slammed by Huge Amounts of Snow!

 

We had aleady guessed, well before the school district made the official call this morning, that it would be a snow day today. We already had two feet of snow over the last couple days, but then we got 18 additional inches just over night last night, making digging out of our own driveway interesting, what alone braving the roads.

Before this storm, Mt. Hood stood at a small fraction of its "normal" snow pack for this time of year, which would not bode well for the summer water supply. Even the city of Portland got a few inches of snow (which happens generally only a couple times a year) and this morning on the banner running at the bottom of the news I counted 57 school districts closed for the day.

Then a southern air flow brought warmer air and the snow turned to rain through the valley. Here in Parkdale, 10 miles south of Hood River and at an elevation of 1,200 feet, it's a rain and snow mix, but higher, it's all snow. With up to two feet more expected.

This is our son, Ben, in our backyard, where he practically had to swim to get:

I looked through your pictures --and couldn't decide which one is my favorite. These are spectacular photos. The middle one looks so magical with the snow fall looking like dots of light. Simply beautiful!
