Portland, Oregon Zoo Snowstorm

Go figure! I move from Portland, Oregon to the Boston area and Portland gets the snow and ice storms. They actually closed the zoo which is really rare. In the picture below Mikhail, an Amur Tiger, seems to take being frozen over in stride as his native home is an island in Siberia, Russia. In past Winter storms caretakers have put out snow blocks for the big cats and discovered they prefer licking them over drinking from their bowl.

  1. We got just a dusting of snow out here in Mulino, Portland got more than that, the freezing rain is what made everything a nightmare, we are all thawed here, the upper elevations around Portland isn’t yet though, and MCC and PCC are closed for a second day today.
