Above 1200' huh?

I live in Mist, elevation is ~600 ft, I'm a little higher as I'm on a hill. Watched the news this morning and Rhonda said snow above 1200 ft, I also noticed that the Vernonia schools weren't mentioned so thought maybe the farther southeast I went it may get better. When I got up @ 5 there was just a bit of slush on the deck, we've had snow everyday since last Tue. but I also clear the deck everyday. By 7 when I decided to leave it was 3+" on the deck, about 6" in the yard (accumulated). As you can see my driveway has quite a bit, yesterday there were 2 clear tracks and the jnct of hwy's 202 and 47 is basically 1 track down the center of the road. Needless to say I went back home but got stuck on the hill going back up to the house, I figured I'd leave it there until the thaw came later in the day but it hasn't stopped snowing since 5 this morning so I think I'll get the tractor out and pull it back up to the house.

there are 3 major weather alerts on weather. com. there super computers are just not fast enough.and the changes are happening in seconds not hours. If Estecada is getting Snow, then I am sure the poor soles at Timber Lake Job Corp are probably stuck

Wondering what we are in for now.. Lots of snow in Sandy and is not showing ANY signs of stopping. How much and for how long can we expect this?

Yep...same here in Estacada at 850 ft. It's best just not to listen to the weather people seeing as they have no idea what they are talking about.
