A day off Wednesday, December 26, 2007

(left) Pioneer Courthouse Square is virtually empty Dec. 25. There was snow in the air on and off throughout the afternoon in Portland, the first Christmas day snowfall in the city since 1990. (below) The downtown Nordstrom department store was all locked up Dec. 25. A sign said that the store would be closed at 4 p.m. on Christmas eve "to prepare for a sale" starting Dec. 26.
