We have had a week of snow and now ice. Portland is pretty well "snowed in" or better yet "iced in"! We had an inch of ice on top of 8-10" of snow last night, so we have been officially closed down. Most flights were cancelled. Bus routes halted and very few trains! But it is beautiful and fun to just slow down and enjoy each others company. Michael has four-wheel drive so we were able to get out and get our daughters home safely...Hope you are taking time out from the "Christmas Rush" to spend some time with your family and friends too.
