  • The Oregon town of Oakridge got an unusual amount of snow this week. The town of 3200 is located in the Willamette National Forest, about an hour and a half outside Eugene. Some residents have been without power since Sunday and the main road leading in and out of town is only open to emergency vehicles. We’ll hear from Oakridge City Council President Chrissy Hollett about what life is like there right now.
