Tillamook County school districts have cancelled school today after heavy snow fell on the area Monday evening in an unusual March snow storm. Nestucca, Neah-Kah-Nie, Tillamook and Tillamook Adventist have closed for the day.

It appears that the heaviest snowfall reported along the north Oregon Coast was in Tillamook, where close to 4 inches of snow fell.

Power outages were reported throughout the area. At about 10 p.m., Tillamook PUD issued a statement: "Tillamook PUD crews are responding to outages in Bay City, Miami Foley Road, Hwy 101 North of Cheese Factory, and Winema area." At 11 p.m., another update stated crews continued to work throughout Tillamook County. Call 503-842-2122 if you are without power. Stay away from downed power lines.

Nice photo of the snow, but I'm glad we have a bit of a break in the weather for the moment. Can't wait for spring to get here.

You'll find out soon enough that most of the extreme weather here on earth is caused not by ozone or CO2, but by changes on the sun, solar storms, etc.

Impressive! Thanks for posting the picture of 4th St. It was 82°F down here in Phx, AZ yesterday - I wish we were back on the OR Coast.

I laughed when I looked at this because I guessed that you people would find SOME controversy in this.

When 99% of the world's scientist agree on something, its really not up for debate anymore. If 99% of doctors told you that you had cancer, would you continue to disbelieve them?

The weather change is cyclical, every 20 years or so you will see the same or close to the same weather pattern. Rather you believe in global warming or not does not matter it is cyclical.

It is SO hilarious (or is it just plain sad) that some people think that global warming is about the planet heating up. It's about weather changes on a global scale.

Thanks to the employees of the PUD for the quick restoration of our power. A truly dedicated group of people.

Wonder what all those fools who don't believe in the reality of global warming are thinking right about now?
