Snow in Portland

Posted on | Shot on at 15:31:55

This last week, Portland’s seen one if the biggest winter snow storms that it’s had in years. This is a photo from 2005 of snow on the grass strip next to my apartment with downtown in the background. I lived in Portland for four years and this was the only snow storm I saw in my time there.
