Yes, it’s true. An inch of snow brought Portland, Oregon to its knees. People took hours to crawl home on the dusted freeways; cars were abandoned after the first slippery slide. All schools and most work closed up tight. This is my first trek out in 3 days.
Today the sun shines, though it’s still well below freezing. On her introduction to the cold white stuff, Little thinks there must be better (and warmer) things to do.
We live near Washington, DC, where an inch of snow can also be paralyzing. We had “Car-maggedon” a few years ago, when a dusting of snow at rush hour led to chaos–people abandoning their cars or being stuck on the roads for hours. Glad I work from home!
I think some of it is because there are so many cars.
