snow days

we're having snow days in portland! and i'm loving it. not just because i have sufficient excuse to not go to work, but i think the snow is just gorgeous. growing up in SoCal didn't exactly provide white christmases, so this is very surreal for me.

for those of you not in portland, the video below is a little taste of what's been going on. and, don't think i'm mean or anything, but the cars sliding is kinda pretty, like if you watch it without the sound and play a lovely classical song in the's nearly choreographed. this video is all the rage on the local news stations.

added bonus? the video was taken by this guy i went to college with...we were really good friends there for awhile, then he kinda disappeared. so it's really nice to know he's doing well and still in the area. (anyone remember derek porter???)

Dude, I'm so jealous of the snow you are getting. Now when we get back it won't snow for another 5 years or something like that. Enjoy some for us.

Yeah, I had to call Paula and tell her that he was the one that shot this footage. It was fun to hear her reaction. :)

Awesome! I know someone who's famous. I watched that about 50 times during unnecessary news coverage and it was the only part that was worth watching.
