We’ve live in Portland almost eight years now and this is the worst winter snow storm we’ve ever seen! I remember when we first moved here and folks would tell us that it might snow during winter but mainly on the west side of the city, in the hills. Then in 2004 we had a bad ice storm with hardly any snow. This week has beaten every winter. The amount of snow is what’s impressive. This reminds me of back home in the midwest. Today we ventured out and scrapped off the cars. Before doing that I walked around our house and snapped a few pics of the ice. It really is lovely how it encases everything, creating an image that is graphic and abstract. Below are a few of the images that stood out to me. Stay warm!
