Up until now I have lived all my life in Oregon. We had snow but it was a rare and momentous occassion ... cause for much celebration most of the time.
I grew up on the southern Oregon coast. Snow on the beach was an amazing thing to behold. I can remember this happening only one or two times in all the years I was there.
I loved the snow when we were living on Kingswood Way as long as school was cancelled. I hated working in Oregon City watching the snow come down and knowing it was most likely snowing twice as hard at home and my drive was going to be very scary. I remember one time when we had early release. By the time I finally got to the day care to pick up Toby and Eryn (only a little more than a mile from our house) I just parked the car and we walked home.
In Oregon there is no de-icing or salting of the roads. There are lots of hills making for treacherous driving conditions. The work done by the winter road crew keeping our roads clear and bare here in Massachusetts is one of my favorite things about living here.
