I find it odd that the city of Portland shuts down when snow falls. I am used to the scene described in the photo, which is all too true. I know when the plow trucks will be through my home town and which roads will be plowed first if I have to work early in the morning or till late at night.
"Living out of your integrity" might be a little confusing wording-wise. To me, it means living without integrity. Essentially, it means living without holding yourself accountable. This is something you shouldn't tolerate, most definitely.
