Ya I'm 20 minutes from portland, and I am in the middle of that winter storm as well. I was worried about thunder and being cold, even though he has his winter coat. I'll have to find out from my BO tomorrow how they keep the water from becoming freezing because I felt it when I was out there and it was like tap water cool, not cold at all. looks like we still have a week of this storm left! Although, I don't think it's going to be as bad as they say.....it was SUPPOSED to get down to 14*F tonight, but it's only 24*F so for us anyway it might warm up a bit more tomorrow. Good luck with your horsey and I'll let you know tomorrow if I find out! Stay safe and warm!
