Oregon's Closed

Not only is it snowing a good bit here in the Portland Metro area, it's actually the dry fluffy stuff.  It very much reminds me of home.  Except this stuff will be gone in a few days time.

Of course they have pretty much shut down the whole state at this point.  Seriously.  Anyway, the weather is no big deal, but it did afford me the opportunity to do something I didn't plan on - skate skiing.  On the road.  Around the neighborhood.  In addition to blowing peoples minds, it was shockingly quite good skiing.  The few cars on the road matted down the center just right and there were no bare spots since they don't plow or toss gravel on anything but the major highways. 

Here I am getting a good workout going around the block about 10 times or so.
