An End to the Beautiful Sunny Skies

Well after a week or so of beautifully blue skies, we are again getting the rain that the Pacific Northwest is known for. For some, it's a relief, there are some strange people like me that love the rain. But it does cause some issues, such as the dog and kids dragging mud through the house, and slippery streets and highways. However, this is a great opportunity to get some great time on the slopes on Mt. Hood, because the snow levels have already dropped as far as Government Camp. Don't forget to check the weather before you go, Highway 26 can get a little icy, so check out the road conditions as well. All in all, there should be great skiing and snowboarding this weekend, with all the rain that's coming down over the Portland area, and the storm continuing on into the weekend, there's bound to be a thick white layer of fresh powder by Saturday. Just im time for a great weekend getaway!
