So, yesterday they said...

... we'd get maybe an inch of snow.



Well, here's the shop at about 4:00 this afternoon... as you can see, there's probably about 4 inches of snow on the ground at this point, with more still falling. Now, to their credit, the weather folks DID revise their forecast... this morning, when I woke up, they were saying 1 to 3 inches, and by the time I got to work, it was 2 to 4... and by 11 am they were talking about 4 to 6, which is about what it looks like we'll end up with.

Unexpected, but it sure is pretty. Not good for business in the bike world, alas. But I DID get a chance to use my Christmas presetn from my boss, John. You can see it there in the picture below... a brand spankin' new snow shovel! :-) Why is that so exciting? Well, because for the last 4 winters I've worked here, we've always used short handled grain scoops, which just kill my lower back. So real, long-handled snow shovel is a joy to use!

So guess it would be a bummer if I told you how warm it was today (2/5) in Portland, huh?

(high of 58, partly sunny)

Well, today and tomorrow (2/5-2/6) we're supposed to get between 20 and 30 inches of snow! And another storm is due Tuesday. A whole lotta snow for this area. I love it! Woo hoo!!!!!
