More snow than I've ever seen in Oregon before. Brad and Mandy's neighborhood reminded me of the snow levels in Donkey Kong Country - snow covered trees, roads, trash cans, cars. It was really beautiful, but a major, major pain. The snow added about 10 hours to our already 26 hour round-trip. The snow encouraged our car slide down a steep road...without anyone in it. The snow made us dislodge a stop sign in order to avoid a make-over on the right side of our car. It was a real dream. But, other than that, the snow brought a good time.
