Ok, this is getting out of hand. Max is down, flights canceled, buses delayed. Will we all have to resort to Bakfiets for travel in Portland? there are were a lot of events in Portland this weekend. You should call ahead as they seem to be all canceling (not Grindhouse!).

Also from Trimet:

Winter Weather Update

Expect delays along the entire MAX alignment due to temporary frozen switches at Gateway Transit Center. All buses remain chained; expect delays of 20-30 minutes. A handful of bus lines are canceled or are on snow routes. LIFT will provide no more pickups from home today unless for life-sustaining trips. Buses will take riders back to their homes. Streetcar is on regular schedules. Check service alerts for updates as soon as they are available.
