It's officially winter

If there is one thing I've noticed the past 5 years living in Portland, its that the weather will always keep you on your toes. I remember a multi-year drought when I was a kid, but the weather just keeps getting funkier and funkier... and I'm not talking about El NiƱo, either:

Oregon's first-ever Hurricane is forecast to hit tonight through Monday - bringing winds of over 90 mph on the coast, around 50 mph in Portland for Sunday and Monday - as well as 1-1.5 inches of rain per day.

The upside to all this is that the storm will dump tons of snow in the mountains - this year is turning out to be a truly excellent ski season!
