Two winters ago we actually had snow.
A lot of snow.
There was ice, too.
Last year we had a little snow.
This year, they predicted the worst winter in years for the Pacific NW. We were waiting to see if that meant snow or rain, as both are possible. We wondered how cold it would be.
We got nothing. Sure it rained some, it is Oregon after all. We wanted snow. We didn't get snow.
