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.
I used to get teased all the time about saying that when the military has us living in California, Colorado, Texas, and Mississippi. Not so much in northern Florida though (or was it just because I was in my 40's by then and no one was going to mess with me plus so many "snow birds" were there in the winter so they got used to it?)
Can I just say that Rafiki is probably my favorite Disney character of all time. He is literally crazy but the wisest out of everyone in Lion King. And we all know that the crazy characters hold the deep messages. For example Frozen. Olaf anyone?!:)
