Pacific Northwest Weather

Tuesday, January 16, 2007
Well, here in the Pacific Northwest it's snowing mighty heavily. Even down here in Salem (in the middle of the Willamette Valley) we got several inches. Tragically, it wasn't enough to close Willamette University (they don't seem to close for much) though many schools in the region did close. Here's a photo I snapped of the state capitol.

One of the interesting things about living here in the Northwest is that the weather is a perfectly acceptable and interesting topic of conversation. It's so frenetic that the changes *are* notable - and the weatherman is so frequently wrong. Last week the temperatures we hitting a high of freezing. This week it's snowing - though slightly warmer. A few weeks ago it was raining like mad and I'm sure we'll get a few days of sun here soon enough.

So that's the news from over here in the Oregon Territory... in case any of you were wondering.

You valley-folk are pansies. Close schools with two inches of snow? Cripes, we don't even close schools with two FEET of snow.

Ah, that gold man is, sadly, the image of home for me...
