The snow and ice forced us to cancel worship today at Parkrose Community United Church of Christ. This is clearly the worst winter weather the Portland area has had in sometime. Folks in the Midwest or northeast wouldn't be fazed this storm (it would seem modest to many) but Portland doesn't get weather like this often so we obviously don't invest in the kind of equipment or manpower needed to clear the roads. When it snows like this in the Rose City the police order chains to be out on all cars and request that citizens simply stay home.

Here's hoping it warms up before Christmas Eve!
Hazel and I this morning at Grant Park.
