winter in Oregon

SNOWMAGGEDON!

Snowgasm!

Oh my god! There’s snow in Portland! The city is shutting down!

All week there was talk of snow but I was skeptical. Oregon freaks out at the slightest bit of white stuff and the whole city comes to a screeching halt. I still didn’t think it would snow enough to make a difference. I woke up Thursday morning, saw a very light dusting and got ready for work. Thankfully a friend of mine texted me asking if my office was closed. I had TOTALLY spaced about the work’s Emergency Line. I had already showered, eaten and was warming up my car to drive to work when she texted me. I immediately called and the recording said: “10 AM START.” Aw man! I could have slept in until 8am? What a bummer. But I’m not complaining about a few extra hours to hang out at home and watch Netflix.


 

That’s a pretty funny parody of hour Oregon reacts to snow.

The shirt I ordered on Woot.com arrived. Unfortunately the small is too small–I couldn’t get it over my shoulders! 🙁

WOOT does not allow returns or exchanges. In fact I got this response: “If your shirt is defective, or if we sent you the wrong size, or we sent you some other shirt by mistake, let us know at service@woot.com. If you just realized you don’t look good in orange, or you decided not to check the sizing chart before you placed your order, well, our impulse is to say that you got yourself a new washrag.”

Hmm. I did check the size on the website and I measured and thought I got the right size. Of course the shirt runs super small and doesn’t fit. I will never use WOOT again. Thanks for the fantastic customer service, WOOT! Fail. My response: “Thank you. I will never purchase something from WOOT again. Good to know this.”

I hope the roads are clear enough for Michael and I to get to the movies tonight…I already bought the tickets!

Well I guess I need to brave the snow storm and get to work!

QUESTION: How does your city react to a little white stuff?
