Snow continues to fall “in fits and starts” around the Portland Metro area and forecasts call for call for more accumulation in the Portland Metro area and the Willamette Valley; of course, our mountains are getting an amazing blast of powder as well (check ski resort conditions here)

Of course, while this sort of weather makes life difficult for travelers, there are a few folks out there who relish in these conditions….skiers and snowboarders, kids who’re sledding, animals at the Oregon zoo, and of course the ever resilient cadre of Portland cyclists!

Here’s a video of the animals enjoying the snow from our friends at the Oregon Zoo:

Portland cyclists…neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow will keep me away from my bike! Thanks to for the video!
