Visit to Portland

I grew up in Portland, Oregon -- but every time I come back for a visit, I feel more and more like a stranger.
  • And when I discovered the Fred Meyer's store at Hawthorne now has a sushi bar, I suddenly felt very, very old.
But then Portland got a half-inch of snow, and the drivers here responded in their time-honored way of going absolutely bananas on the freeway, and I realized that nothing important had changed, after all.

Yes, you can go home again . . .

Just so long as you don't drive faster than five miles-an-hour.
