Snowstorm - Salem Report

Monday, December 22, 2008
While yesterday I woke up in Portland with the intent of driving down to Salem, today I woke up in Salem with the intent of getting around. It's a rare thing that snow blankets downtown Salem (the Oregon Willamette Valley cities don't get a whole lot of snow - on average), so it's extremely unusual for us to get several days worth of snow.

another day with my car covered in snow

Imagine my surprise, then, when - after clearing 8 inches of snow and ice off my car yesterday - I had to clear another 5 inches of fresh snow off my car this morning. Of course, it didn't bother me too much since I'd left the chains on overnight and was looking forward to driving in the snow. (Driving on slush in chains bothers me, driving on bare pavement in chains bothers me a lot.)

So yes, Salem was blanketed in snow today. Much of it melted, though more snow was falling throughout the daylight hours. Driving with the chains was easy and fun.

My prediction? I think most of what's left will freeze tonight, we'll get a bit more precipitation tomorrow, then everything will melt and, by Christmas, the snow will be (mostly) a thing of the past.

Of course, all the truck and SUV drivers are feeling extremely vindicated right at this moment...
