Disappointed where I am - hardly any snow at all! I even went to the store and bought supplies for a week long seige. Oh well.

The news coverage (including the grocery store coverage where they show people frantically stocking up as if they were going to be snowed in for the next 3 months) is always good for a laugh.

We moved up on a big hill in Tualatin this year so I'm curious to see how things go... I could see everyone getting stuck here for awhile. Back in Hillsboro it was totally flat, but that also meant zero street plows and giant ruts in the road when we actually did get some decent snow/freeze in 2008.

Looks like it may not be over.
They are predicting a good chance of heavy snow for tonight and Tuesday.

Chances are, like always, we'll get about 3 feet of BS from the news media and no snow.

It snows in Portland, supposedly, but this New Yorker says that was not really snow. :-) It was like snow tourism. Watch it, then go home and it's gone.

Sadly, this is very true. But as a former Montanan/Alaskan/Minnesotan I still get my hopes up every time
