Snow fell in Portland, and just about everybody got a snow day or two out of the arctic blast.
It doesn't happen all that often in the Willamette Valley, but every 5-7 years, enough of the white stuff sticks around to turn the city into a winter wonderland. This time, it stuck around all weekend.

We had a genuine Northwest September this year. The first fall rains came the first week, bringing out mushrooms like we haven't seen in years. Then a return to warm and summery weather to remind us how friendly our climate can be. There were some showery days with sun-breaks mixed in there, and now the snow has returned to the mountains, blanketing them white.
Snow, snow and more snow! Winter has come to the Cascades Mountains, and Next Adventure is taking you there on New Year's Day. Resolve to get out and enjoy the natural wonders afforded us in the Pacific Northwest.
Snow flurries drifted down from the low clouds, fresh powder dusting the winter landscape. White-frosted firs bowed down laden with heavy snow. We found several inches of snow on the ground at around 3200 feet on Mt. Hood National Forest. Deep enough to ski! Contouring up the road, we saw several others on the multi-use road, but mostly we were alone in the forest stillness. By the time we reached our turnaround at 3800 feet, we were skiing on over a foot of snow, and more was still falling.
