Snow Day!

I couldn't even venture outside to take this picture.


After enjoying mildly rainy temperatures in the mid forties for the past few weeks, Portland finally hit a cold snap. For the past week all we've been hearing about is "the storm." Snow was coming, and the world as we know it would be different. At the ward Christmas party they announced that they would let us know if church would be canceled due to snow. Church canceled because of snow? But this morning we woke up earlier than usual because Jon was speaking. No snow. Ten minutes later, it starts snowing. Ten minutes after that, we get the call that church is canceled. Now, it did snow all day, probably 2 inches, with a lot of wind. But I'm not used to that amount shutting down a major city. News shows warned of the dangers of hypothermia and frostbite, and chains were advised. Jon's school is canceled tomorrow. I'm hoping I don't have to go into my temp job tomorrow...

In some ways its fun to miss church. Its kind of like when your a kid and you wished school would be canceled. We really thought our church would cancel because yesturday it was -11. It didn't cancel and thats fine. today its -4. I just have to keep telling myself I do like Montana! Did you guys get cabin fever on your snow day?
