But it was enough to immobilize the city and keep AdRi at work overnight. It doesn't take much to shut Portland down people, stop laughing. But I want a real snow storm...
One that brings big fluffy snowflakes, piling one on top of another.And I will think back to my snow chant, rub my hands together, and ponder the powers of the snow chant.
A storm that makes walking down the sidewalk a slip sliding affair.
A storm to build snowmen and snow to send my dog off bounding like a bunny in.
A snow storm that leaves it so eerily quiet out, except for the geese flying from the Columbia to the Willamette, and I directly underneath their flight path.
A snow storm that brings out the cross country skiiers and urban snowshoers and even a few snow mobilers.
A snow storm that closes the school and fills the park with shrieking laughing kids making snow angels and throwing snowballs.
And inevitably a snow storm everyone will complain about.
