Northwest Snowy Christmas

We managed to get to California in an epic 19-hour road trip journey. There are some harsh weather conditions, mostly in Portland, due to their lack of snow-plow equipment and a working snow itinerary. But Southern Oregon and Northern California are experiencing their own "storm of the century" at the moment. Twenty-four-hour snowfall in the mountains and a monsoon from Crescent City to Richmond, CA. That's some daredevil driving conditions.

Have a wonderful holiday. We're planning on eating a lot of pumpkin bread today.

Sledding in our neighborhood in Vancouver, WA--largest snowfall in 58 years! Makes for some good sledding (and shoveling and going stir crazy).
