One of the best Christmas presents some of us west of the Cascades could get is a Christmas that's a little less white. Looks now like we're getting it.
We woke up this morning to more - yet more - snowfall. After the last 10 days or so, that was a depressing prospect. But somewhere during a walk around town, the light precip turned to rain, and stayed there.
Day long, the melt has escalated. Out here - west of Portland - a lot of roads, yards and roofs still are white-covered, but the depth is diminished, and the number of non-white surfaces is growing.
Looking forward to a Christmas with passable roads . . .
