Yes, it’s true. An inch of snow brought Portland, Oregon to its knees. People took hours to crawl home on the dusted freeways; cars were abandoned after the first slippery slide. All schools and most work closed up tight. This is my first trek out in 3 days.

Today the sun shines, though it’s still well below freezing. On her introduction to the cold white stuff, Little thinks there must be better (and warmer) things to do.

About Mollie Hunt

I am the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane. Words to live by: Spay and neuter; Live long and prosper; Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

    We live near Washington, DC, where an inch of snow can also be paralyzing. We had “Car-maggedon” a few years ago, when a dusting of snow at rush hour led to chaos–people abandoning their cars or being stuck on the roads for hours. Glad I work from home!
