Portland rarely gets snow and when we do, we’re so unprepared for it that the whole city basically shuts down. When the snow started falling in the valley Thursday morning we were optimistic we’d still be able to have our dinner. However, it didn’t stop falling all day Thursday and most of Friday. With many of us stuck in our houses/apartments we made the decision to postpone Mary’s celebration.
And boy, am I glad we did. I’ve got at least 6-7 inches of snow at my house after snow Thursday-Saturday and after an ice storm last night there is now a thick layer of ice on top.
I’d already made her birthday dinner dessert (“Mary” macarons) so instead of letting them go to waste, my family and I have been chowing down on them, sorry Mary!
This weather did provide the perfect opportunity for some snowy pictures, so I’ll leave you all with some of those 🙂
