Still strange

It occurred to me today that I haven’t posted a “something weird happened in Eugene” post lately, and that occurred to me today because I saw something weird in Eugene.  Funny how that works.

We got about 3 inches of snow yesterday, it tried to melt for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon, clearing the streets and sidewalks part of the way and turning the slow into slush, but then the temperature dropped below freezing overnight and stayed below freezing all day today, so the snow and slush turned into ice and is still around.  I was driving along 5th Ave this afternoon, slowly, carefully, with the 4-wheel drive on, when I saw a guy with ski poles making his way to the corner.  Turned to John: “Is that guy skiing?”

Yes, he was.

    The last big(ish) snow we had here, I looked up from my book to see a man snowboarding down the street in front of my house. 🙂

      I do but in Asheville. We get a snow like that once every 3 or 4 years. It only lasts for roughly 2 days. I’m several roads off of a minor secondary road though, so by the time they salt my street it’s June.

          They were probably just having fun. No point in going out. Everything was closed. It isn’t even sticking to the ground tonight, and I’ve already seen several cancellations and closures for the weekend.
