Portland, February 8th, 2013. It was Portland’s biggest February snow storm since 1993 and kids around the city took advantage of the opportunity to go slip-sliding around. Portlanders in the Dunthorpe neighborhood took the street on foot to admire the layer of white stuff, at least 6-inches in some areas. Here are a few photos from out and about:

And the  mailman upheld the cred, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their … Rain or shine, snow or sleet, we deliver your mail!”
