Actual snow in portland...

So today at 4 PM, the school announced while I was in the middle of a lecture that they were closing an hour early because of "impending inclement weather."  and that we should "pack up our belongings" and gtfo.  I as I peered through the window into the flake-free parking lot, I thought,

"OK, so now PCC is closing because it might snow in the future...."

Really, Portland is the laughing stock of the nation when it comes to snow and how we react to it.  Here is an article written in the Oregonian in December about how the entire city closed down for an INCH of snow.  We seriously go nuts here when a single flake drops from the heavens.

But tonight?  Yeah!  we actually got some real snow!  here is a photo taken from my front porch about 15 minutes ago:
