Winter in the NW

IMG_2049.JPG

Portland winters are generally pretty mild. This means grey skies, lots of rain and generally, above freezing temperatures. This winter has been the exception! We have already had roughly 8 snow days-school cancelled, buses not running, trains derailed, and a host of other chaotic events. Portlanders and the transplants that make up this wonderful city seem to panic in this weather. This is why I generally try to stay home and stay off of the roads.  

So in order to stay sane we make a lot of hot cocoa, cookies, soups and crafts. It also is a great time to hunker down into my cozy little studio and make pots.  

How are you enjoying your slower winter days?
