    It snowed like 8-9 inches here but I've been getting alerts about pdx all day! I'm always the pdx defender when ppl here make fun of how they handle snow like when you're not used to a lot it's harder and there's more ppl there! And I'm used to it and I still suck lol

    holy shit I could not imagine. My office cut us loose around 12 so getting home was fine, but I was hanging up with a friend who lives over near Powell Butte until like 9 and it took me an hour to get home (inner SE, usually like 15 minutes).

    Kind of bummed I went to visit back home in Florida the day after the first snow hit.

    But with how much of a shit show Portland is when it snows, I'm kind of glad I wasn't haha.

    I'm cheating cause I'm on the other side of the state but it's snowing so much I wanna die. We cancelled class every day this week so far and it hasn't let up at all. We're supposed to get a foot over the course of the week but idk. They closed some of the roads in town, like main street, which is obv an important street lol so I'm prob gonna be stuck at home the rest of the week unless they decide to have school Thursday

    decided to work from home today but they ended up cancelling everything after a couple hours so now I'm just hanging out making hot toddies so being snowed in could be worse tbh

    Omg people here are being so annoying about Portland. "It's not even that much snow!! Idiots can't drive in it" blah blah blah like omggg stfu nobody cares. Funny cause everyone here calls city pdx ppl snobby but they're being snotty af themselves lol. Like why so pressed? It's like a requirement that people who drive those huge 4 wheel drive trucks need to look down on everyone else for how they handle the snow and I'm about to break and yell at all of them lol.


    Sorry, rant again. But people have been gloating here for like 2 weeks and it's so smarmy that I can't handle it!

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    Probably a long shot, but anyone here looking for a roommate (or know someone who is) in the Portland area? I don't even want to know how many craigslist ads I've replied to and been told they're slammed with replies.

    as someone who is going to be in this boat in a matter of weeks, this is disconcerting
     
  15. With the rate I'm seeing apartments/condo buildings going up around here, I feel like Portland's going to just keep growing. I don't think I know anyone looking for a roommate though.

    Are you looking strictly inside Portland? Would you consider Milwaukie or Oregon City area? I may know someone looking, shortly.

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    I have mostly been looking in Hillsboro/Beaverton/west hills, but I am not against going outside that area if it's the right situation and price. I'm not very familiar with other areas.
