It's snowing in Portland - a visual poem
Portland lives up to it's reputation of steady rainfall much of the year but snow is relatively rare. On the evening of October 10, 2017, snow began to fall heavily over the city and not to stop until the following day. With a total of 12 inches reported, it was the biggest snowstorm in 20 years. The storm may have shut the city down, but it also enticed many Portlanders to the streets where they celebrated gleefully in the snow until the wee hours.
