Snowing right now on central Oregon coast

Big, wet, floppy, thick flakes coming down right now. And it's sticking. Apparently roads are impassable between Cape Foulweather and Depoe Bay. Very tough going for anyone on the road. Complete surprise. We've gone from 70mph winds and rain to 3mph winds and mountain-like snow. This is a horrible photo of my back deck taken with an iPad, lighted by the outside motion sensor light. Trees are apparently falling along Highway 20 and they're closing the east-west corridor between the coast and inland. And we're here safe and sound, listening to the scanner while things are getting crazy out there. Kind of exciting!

Yep, it's heading my way. Reno will get just rain, maybe some wet snow. The mountains may get 5 feet of snow this week. We sure need it!
