Big Snowfall in Portland

What started as a visit to Portland for Christmas turned out to be nearly a month-long stay. An unusually large amount of snow fell, and the city is completely disabled by such rare occurrences. Highway 26 out to Umatilla where I was staying was also very treacherous and even closed for a time. So I made the best of it and enjoyed the winter scenery.

Mom and I went on a walk to find somewhere to eat the first day. Virtually everything was closed, and we finally ended up at Fred Meyer. The second day Dad wanted to take a drive in the snow, so we went downtown and ate at Chipotle.
