Tuesday night after we had eaten dinner, put our pajamas on, re-arranged our bedroom, and were getting ready to tuck in for the night, we noticed it had started snowing!
We realized that snow is fleeting in Portland, so we decided to put our clothes back on, get bundled up, and go for a walk around the neighborhood.
The bikes were cuddling up for warmth:
I even got an I Love You from my wife :)
We had a really nice 20 minute leisurely walk around the neighborhood arm in arm, caught some snowflakes, chatted. People driving down the main streets were even driving at reasonable speeds (what I would consider a reasonable speed for clear conditions – one that feels manageable for people outside the cars), it was quiet and beautiful.
And, it turns out it was a good thing we went out, because Wednesday morning was a mess of slush and heavy rain.
It’s supposed to rain steadily for about a week, coupled with 40mph winds. Not exactly my ideal. But, for just a moment there, we had a touch of winter wonderland :)
