  • Power’s out in Aloha… #pdxtst #
  • PGE outage line says 2300+ people affected in Aloha. Power’s been out since 3:53AM here. No ETA from PGE. πŸ™ #pdxtst #
  • Come on, PGE. It’s been 2+ hours. It’s starting to get cold in here… πŸ™ #pdxtst #
  • 3 hours later, power’s back. Didn’t have to bundle us up after all. Thanks, PGE! πŸ™‚ #pdxtst #
  • Wow. Several more inches of snow fell in Aloha overnight. There’s at least a foot. This is going to get worse before it gets better. #pdxtst #
  • In a foul mood. Have had it with this snow crap. Tired of being cooped up. Supposed to be on vacation. This weather needs to Die in a Fire. #
  • It’s not fair to my family to have to be around me when I’m this grouchy, and we need milk, so I’m going out. Wish me luck. #
  • ZOMG those are the scariest road conditions I have EVER driven in. TV Hwy is a death trap, and hasn’t been touched by a plow AT ALL. #pdxtst #
  • Lanes on TV Hwy are 6″ deep ruts in the snow/ice. Tried to change lanes, went sideways across three lanes into oncoming traffic :-O #pdxtst #
  • SO lucky not to have hit/been hit by anyone. Saw many vehicles, with and without chains, fly right off the road. #
  • I escaped harm on the road, but slipped and fell down the stairs in front of a store, crunching my back. Embarrassing and painful. πŸ™ #
  • So, all that complaining earlier, about being cooped up at home? Still valid, but I’m awfully happy to be home right now. πŸ™‚ #
  • @ahockley Oh yeah, driveway was fun, too. Car encased in a candy shell of 6″snow/1″ ice/6″ snow. I blame your #BancroftCarIgloo idea. πŸ˜‰ in reply to ahockley #
  • Still can’t believe there was NO sign TV Hwy had been plowed or graveled or anything. I didn’t see a single ODOT truck. Public Safety Fail. #
  • @billpearson You have 24″ of snow?! That’s just crazy! Suddenly I don’t feel SO bad. Let us know if we need to airlift in supplies. πŸ™‚ in reply to billpearson #
  • RT @oregonian: Our latest weather story, featuring a quote from @jabancroft http://is.gd/d4Ig in reply to oregonian #
  • @billpearson I said several quotable things to that reporter. A bit puzzled why he selected that (lame) one. But he’s the reporter! πŸ™‚ in reply to billpearson #
