Chris and I dropped Dave off at the airport, and then headed back to Mt. Hood Meadows, where a blizzard was in progress. They had received 14" of snow in the last 24 hours and more was coming down.
It proved to be quite the experience. I looked at the report the next day and we had wind gusts over 60 mph, with common gusts being 40-50 mph. Still, we found some semi-sheltered spots and plenty of deep snow.
The day did not provide for many still pictures, but I did take this VIDEO on the chairlift that gives you a little idea of the wind. 5.05 MB
That night I made my 2nd annual trip to Liquid Solutions, a great store very near Chris and Lane's house. Click HERE for a different wall panorama of the local and regional beer selection.
One cool thing about Liquid Solutions is Matt keeps his stock in a giant cooler. This keeps it out of the light and chilled. His wall of beer allows him to display a single bottle of what he has in his storeroom. You write on a piece of paper what you want and he goes into the cooler and pulls your order.

That night we went to a cool, new German placed called Gustav's.
