They are forecasting 15 inches in Portland. It seems as though they always under estimate the ocean effect. I'm hoping for 20+... thats on top of he 9 inches we have on the ground from last week. Should be a fun Sunday for northeast Outback owners.
Wow guys - your snow storm even made it onto the New Zealand TV news here tonight.!
Looks cold! - for what it is worth I was appointed head BBQ chef today at lunchtime for our dog training club'd champ obedience and agility show - 24 degrees (that's about 78 degrees farenheit I think) and sunny when I left there about 2:30 pm.
Keep those snow pics coming - neat to see OB's in their element!
I'll definitely try to snap some pics in the morning.
I shoveld about 8 inches out earlier tonight, there is already 5 more in the driveway with about 8 more hours of lake effect still to come...nice!
As you can see from my gallery...I'm a little turned on by the way my car looks in the snow, so tomorrow will provide a great chance for a few pics, unfortunately I've got to work from 12-5...primetime for good natural lighting.
It is still months away before we get any of the white stuff over here - and even then we don't get snows like Nth America does. Lots of black frosts and ice though, which make for interesting driving, I can tell you!
Suby's are GREAt in those conditions. i was in Central Otago a couple of years back and knew it was cold but didn't realise how bad the road was until I stopped at an accident where a car had run off the road on a 100km/hr corner. I had been driving carefully but pretty normally, then as soon as I stopped and got out I slipped flat on my back - with the road almost too slippery to walk on - but the Suby drove fine on it.
The pic's you posted back in March would be considered a Heavy fall here - mostly we get only 1/2 that amount where I live a few times a year - unless I want to drive to the mountains a couple of hours away where it is more like what you showed.
