It started in the morning and never stopped.

 

Meteorolgoist Steve Pierce says the Portland area saw six inches of snow and it was still coming overnight.

 

He says they're even breaking records.

 

"Portland will have had the coldest daytime high this late in the season since 1933, so since February 9th, 1933, when the high was 23 degrees.  It has stood for 81 years.  And the strongest snow storm and arctic blast in 25 years since the 1989 arctic blast."

 

Pierce says traffic came to a standstill on area highways when schools let out and businesses closed because of the snow Thursday afternoon.
