Dapper dresser confronts snowy Saturday to get a lemon.

We're in our third straight day of snow! Plus, now it's sleet and/or freezing rain which will continue until sometime tomorrow. I went out for two walks today, one around 10-11 a.m., the other about four hours later on. Just lots of snow on the first walk; no snow on second walk, just a bit of sleet and freezing rain.

On my first walk, I noticed this man, dapper dresser that he is. Who wouldn't notice, snow or no snow? He graciously agreed when I asked if I could take his photo and put it on my blog.


He told me that in his paper bag he had vintage literature--I think he mentioned dictionaries, philosophy and one other topic which escapes me now. When I asked where he got them, he said that he works on the other side of NE Sandy at Old Portland Hardware and Architectural. Then he went on to say that he was walking home, a few blocks south of my building, to get a lemon. He and his boss were going to make some cider. I love Portland!

I heard you guys were getting a ton of snow. Love this guy's style -- even in bad weather, he looks great!

Dapper he is. The haircut leaves a bit to be desired. Looks like a cross between a lawyer and a rock star! :)

That much snow is unusual for Portland, right?

Snow over sleet any day. I love the mash up of his hair and suit.

The weather could easily be here!

it's a curious mix of professional clothing and an unusual haircut!
