Portland is a funny city. It rains most of the time (not as much as Seattle!) and people are kind of used to it. But, once it's cold enough, and that precipitation freezes and the snow starts to fall, the city goes on this weird state of panic/emergency/fascination. All of the schools shut down, and any sort of national or international news takes back seat to the three new flakes that fell on Mt. Tabor.
Anyway, I opens up the opportunity to dream about the snow bunny gear of my dreams. Like the dopo sci boots (Moonboots!- I've wanted a pair for years), Monclear coats, and hot chocolate. So, wherever you may be out there where snow is, i hope you are warm!
