As long as it rains after driving in the salt mixture that gets rid of the snow.
Forecast is showing 50's and heavy rain by Tuesday - that could be very bad. If it's like '96, and it gets too warm with too much rain, we could see some very bad/damaging flooding all over the area. Hopefully the warm-up won't be that extreme.
Snow day for etrain...but still have work to do, so not a goof-off day. Thankfully I do have the ability to work from home, so no need to burn a PTO day.
Here is our snow overnight
We went 9 days on auxiliary power that year; I was working 18 hour days keeping our generator and the elderly couple's generator going, keeping the roads clear, and conducting security opns.
Currently: 3" on the ground and 29 degrees @ 1,200 feet.
Looks like a solid foot here on the south side of SW Hills.
Gotta get the snow shovel out of my AWD car (in the garage) and dig my way into the 4WD truck with knobbies up by the street. Not that I've got to go anywhere right now, my work was officially closed for today by 11 last night.
Cold and windy forecast for the next few days will surely mean trees falling here, taking down power lines, too. Typical "wintry mix" scenario in this neck of the woods.
Guy on the TV news is asking people on the street downtown where they're trying to go. Methadone clinic is the best answer I've heard so far. Portlandia.
Sounds like a pain. We're 30 degrees and 4-5" depending on where I measure. About 400' elevation. Thankfully we still have power, if it goes out, I don't have a generator, but we have a gas fireplace, a nice one, that puts out plenty of heat, so we can at least stay warm.
Bwwwaahhaaa...I saw that one too. Nothing like being dope sick in Portland and jonesing for your methadone fix and have to have your homies wheel you down the street.
Which reminds me, I'm out of beer.
New Years prep plan ???
Oh you know it will. Y'all will get a tropical breeze coming thru at about 50* with some rain.
Haha read you forecast post after I posted this. Hope it is a bad forecast but living on the wet side can be like that
Prep fail. Should have been in the grocery store lines with the Chicken Littles yesterday. Priorities dude .
Those poor plant sinking.
And do you have heated seats in the jeep? The roof melted the snow for some time right above the front of the cab
Just an observation
ODOT says chains required on PDX area state roads.
PDX roads total unmitigated mess - stay away.
Working from home again today (been sick).
Lost power while asleep, not sure how long, maybe briefly.
Literal blanket of snow - maybe 10" at 900' - most of the snow had melted yesterday except an inch or snow of crusty/slushy snow.
Approx 8" here on the hill in Gresham
Oh, I'm prepped. Just no IPA.
No, I went old school, even got manual windows.
Ah yes, nothing like some yummy IPA's while digging out... I prepped, thanks to Costco...
Looks to be 10-12 inches here in Hillsboro. Work cancelled today, hopefully will cancel again tomorrow... Can't see the major arteries here being passable even by tomorrow....
Snowmageddon 2017 1.0!!!
Fox12 talked to a guy in a motorized wheelchair early this morning. He was on his way to the store for cigarettes and to take pictures. He was cruising down the middle of the road. Thank goodness there was no traffic.
