OK, it could be worse... according to KATU, a Portland TV station, the following photo and another at the link were taken in 1930. The mighty Columbia River froze over thick enough to support a car or an airplane.That would not only require it to be quite cold, but for even longer than we've had it. The piece also points out, interestingly, that whatever cold spell we might have, because of modern hydrological management this probably isn't possible now.
