Portland Restaurants and Carts Closing for the Snow

Some restaurant owners, remembering the hot (or cold) mess that was the winter of 2016-2017, are just shutting down for the next few days

Whenever it snows in Portland, chaos ensues. Cars crash, kale disappears, and East Coast and Midwestern expats mock the desperate West Coasters terrified by frozen water. Restaurant and food cart owners are technically able to reopen for indoor dining Friday, but some are opting to close down altogether, concerned about the potentially treacherous roads and bleak food cart conditions — not to mention the probable lag in business.
