This news coverage of a Portland, Oregon snowstorm will forever make you question the definition of the word "snowdrift."

When I first started watching this weather footage from KPTV Fox 12, I honestly thought it was something produced by The Onion. Was this Portland reporter really referring to this precipitate equivalent of a 13-year-old boy's mustache as a "drift?"  Seriously. Watch the video and you'll get a good laugh.

You have to cut them some slack. While Portland is no stranger to freezing rain, they don't see this much snow that often. And in their defense, they have recently seen accumulation that might even compete with our own.

You gotta admit, that's some funny stuff, right there.  And thanks to our good friend Scott Burton for spotting this one for us. We appreciate the chuckle, Scott.
