Seriously though, we had about 10"-12" overnight in January this year, which is a healthy snowfall. I stepped outside and took this pic and thought, "Damn... uh, where will the dog pee?" LOL That said, Portland did basically shut down for a week. All of those Subarus and no one knew how to drive them. :P Our EVs made it just fine though. ;)

The same thing happens here in Colorado. The least snowfall causes the weather to be the leading news story for three days.

Didn't Portland get something like a foot recently? If this reporter, and anchors, are trying to get everyone freaked out over the accumulation of a dusting, they might act like the apocalypse is happening when more falls! Besides, it snows in the higher elevations of Oregon quite regularly!

I too am a native of CO , been here far too long. Laugh my tush off every time, BUT, the drivers in it are truly the worst.

LMAO. Sorry, I have no pity. Even with the lighter winter this year, that is just sad.

I'm a transplanted CO native and while yes PDX does freak out over snow, the ice and black ice here is not to be underestimated. Keep in mind that PDX does not salt the roads, because the salt is bad for the environment. So, trecharous ice.

Salt is not bad for the environment. The only reason they don't salt is they don't have it.

So what's the environmental impact of de-icing chemicals? Hmmmm? This "storm plan" of Portland seems to contradict what you said? Road treatments Winter road conditions are affected by a number of weather factors. Crews monitor temperatures of the air, road surfaces, and the ground, wind data, relative humidity, dew point, visibility, and precipitation. Crews also monitor specific roadway conditions all around the city. Road treatments include application of anti-icing and de-icing chemical, sanding, plowing, limited snow removal, and street closures. The City owns five trucks for anti-icing and de-icing streets, bridges, and overpasses. Anti-icing is normally carried out after the evening peak traffic period or before the morning rush. Arterial streets and emergency transportation routes are plowed first during a storm. Those are the major streets leading toward downtown Portland in the early morning and away from downtown in the afternoon. Non-arterial streets are plowed only when the arterial streets are cleared. Plan your route accordingly. Crews use snowplows when snow begins to accumulate at a depth of one inch or more on the street surface. Streets with grades greater than 14% are not treated due to safety concerns.

Jenny Stoffel

Contradicts how? I'm not sure what your point is. Effects of deicing chemicals would depend on the chemical. I've lived here through the last several winters and can speak to the fact that anything other than sand is used very sparingly. However, if you want to believe that your armchair Googling of 2 minutes suddenly makes you an expert on something, that's your right, but it's misguided.

I was born and raised in Colorado. Vice these guys a break. They don't know how to deal with snow, plus the inch of ice under it. We didn't get the ice storms in Colorado like we do here. Plus...Liberal pussified Portland is full of professional victims.

These NW folks don't have a clue! At the same time the folks that have transplanted to Colorado don't have a clue either. It is darn scary to be on the roads with them during a snow storm.

No joke, I'm a native born Colorado girl who lives in Portland. It's actually quite hilarious when the city gets even a dusting of snow. News goes crazy, people drive like lunatics, but if you can find a safe place to observe it's actually quite entertaining.
