Cool as Ice
Portland didn't wake up with much snow on the ground this morning but it's sure to discover plenty of ice tomorrow. Take a look at this camera phone photo of my car, taken right around 9:30 tonight:
Sure, that might look like snow but it's actually ice, snow's ugly stepsister twice removed.
It's times like this that make me glad to be stuck on a swing shift. An icy night commute with few cars on the road beats a frantic, winter wonderland morning commute. Hopefully, the temperature will rise above freezing by the time I have to head in tomorrow.
UPDATE: Or maybe not. Tomorrow's high is going to be a measly 35 degrees, according to the Weather Channel. Curse you, climate, curse you!
