PPS has already had 5 "snow days" prior to today, but they were typical "Oregon snow" days, where we get wet, icy slush. This was a legitimate 4" plus (depending on what part of the city you live) magical winter wonderland. I didn't measure the snow by the book, since I took it on the porch under tall Douglas Fir trees, so we probably got more than 4 inches. It's going to stick around too...just got the text from the District, going for snow day number 7 tomorrow. Sheesh. We're going to be in school until July!
