Snow Storm 2008

At least I was better off than these two guys...

Storm Facts:  Interstate 84 closed through the Columbia River Gorge.

Highway 26 closed through the coast range.

55,000 homes without electricity.

Over 400 flights canceled at PDX.

Nearly all businesses closed on December 22.



If I needed to go anywhere I figure I could take my Brat...luckily I didn’t need to go anywhere..

I shoveled the driveway completely clear on the 17th and the 20th...this is as far as I got on the 22nd.

Blowing snow caused a cool snow “wave” in the backyard
