    I just went out to make sure the chickens had water and food and there's at least 10" of snow and it's still coming down!! the wind is picking up too. It's around 20 degrees and they're saying the worst of the storm is yet to come!! I don't remember ever having this much snow in Portland.

    We are supposed to get rain Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, but the temps are due to be in the 20's. I am not sure how rain works in that temps.
