    Snow in Portland

    Yes, I realize that the rest of the country gets REAL snow, but since we got 3 inches which closed the schools and offices, I thought I would share a picture of my 4 year old's snow man:

    hahah that's cool. Wow three inches closed schools? CU didn't close when we got two feet, the bastards.

    We've had below freezing temps here but no snow yet, I think it's supposed to rain tomorrow though. Meanwhile Ian told me it's 104 in Australia, lucky bastard.

    That's a really cute snowkid, Justin!
    The snow seemed just right for building - I saw several 8 foot tall (and relatively slender) snowmen/women as I was driving home today.

    Your son's snowman is cute! Is he loving the snow? My daughter is.

    I was going a little stir crazy, and I needed to get groceries, and here are a few of the snow creations I saw on the way to the store.

    We had 2 inches in the wine country! Don't expect too much citrus fruits from California this year. 20% less avocados too so I think we should keep them for ourselves

    Hey! I just realized you live right by Sears Pt.

    Luckily we have our own little orange tree in the backyard. I'm going to miss it when we move.

    Oh, and it snowed in Malibu today. First time we've had snow in LA in about 20 yrs.

    Snowplows in Malibu?
