Last weekend Hood River got hit with an unusual snow fall! It dumped about 18 inches in a 10 hour span of time. I ended up not being able to drive out of town and ad to walk home, and a few others were in the same boat! Chains would have come in handy for sure. That sunday, Jason and I went kayaking down the white salmon to get some exercise in and trekked in waist deep snow to the put-in, it was by far the most snow I've ever been paddling in!
