The snow gives and the snow destroys—this post is about the former. Namely, sledding opportunities in local parks, urban cross-country skiing and plenty of pretty landscape photos.

Of course, the fact that we've all been working from home for a year anyway took some of the thrill out of the rare Portland snow day or, rather, snow weekend. But still: We had fun.

Here's what it looked like.
