December 31, 2007, Portland, Oregon, United States.
37 degrees Fahrenheit, solid clouds, fog, overnight low of 33. Yesterday's snow/hail/slushy bullshit stuck, melted, refroze, halfway melted, and now covers the sidewalks and streets with every possible combination of puddles, ice, frost, black ice, partially frozen water and partially melted ice.
The Portland Mercury, Willamette Week, Oregonian, and other fine publications all have lists of the hot places to go, things to do, $75 dinners to eat, clubs to be seen in, and $12 cocktails to drink. But they are all forgetting one New Year's option that is not to be missed, namely, dressing up all hot and fancy and then curling up in bed with a plate of burritos and all 5 Harry Potter movies because, dude, seriously. Black ice? Fuck that.Posted by dianna at December 31, 2007 01:57 PM
