Apparently there was a major mudslide on the Columbia highway, well East of Portland. My family was concerned, as I drive on roads in the Portland area. Well, have no fear. I do not drive near the location of the mudslide.
In other weather related catastrophe news, the midwest is covered in ice. Bren’s parents are near K.C., Mo., so I’d imagine they are among the frozen. This ice storm appears to be a major incident.
