So yesterday afternoon it started snowing here in Portland. Snow is not a common occurrence every year but we have had some good storms here.
This was not a huge storm, we only got 3" or so of the white stuff but man...what a mess.
All the main routes were jammed up like you wouldn't believe. So were the alternate routes. Folks were not prepared. A lot of vehicles were left right where the owner's decided to leave them if they could no longer move. All access to my neck of the woods from downtown Portland requires going over some hills with some pretty steep grades, even on the main freeway routes.
Me and the Ram had no problem at all...except for the blockages.
By the way, that's an average of 2.875 miles per hour...
So, it took me 7 hours to get home...boring!!!
