Not unusual for Portland in December. We had a record year for snow last year though. Worst winter since 1980, but that was the year of mt St. Helens. Right now is supposed to be the time of Global Warming. I am only mildly grumpy, as I am using electric heat, and my bill last month was a horror. But it sure is nice watching it snow, frosting the rooftops, while I sit here with my peppermint flavored hot chocolate.
