Arctic Blast '08

December 22, 2008

Evidently, last week, the 2 inches of snow we had qualified as an arctic blast.

THIS week, however, we really are having an arctic blast.

People who have lived here all of their lives say they have never seen anything like this.

The steps here at the guest house were shoveled with a hoe as snow shovels are not usually few people have them at least here in town.

I have been holed up for over a week at the guest house only going out to a local restaurant once or twice...and for about an hour last Monday when there was a break, I went shopping.

Portland proper has probably had about 12 inches of snow so far.

Banks, which is about 30 miles away, has had 16 to 18 inches.

And there is another storm scheduled to arrive on Wednesday.

THE GOOD NEWS? It's gonna turn to rain sometime in the next week or so.

Happy Holidays...
