"Thanks to the angels on the Beaverton I-26 exit coming out of Portland! There were about 5 of them helping people as fast as they could. Extra special thanks to an awesome guy who I think I heard his friends call him Red. He towed me from that Portland exit, through the tunnel, over Sylvan Hill, almost to Canyon Rd. He wouldn't take any money & barely even the thanks and praise. I couldn't read his license plate number because it was covered in snow. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! So proud of the good people living in the Northwest!"
Portland people are always good! When driving home on 26 to the coast (at the end of my 8 hour drive) i got a flat tire! I pulled over looked at the tire looked up and down the street wondering which way to walk and suddenly a woman pulls over in a van asked if i needed help and said it looked like i had kids so she stopped, I had my daughters 8 & 3 in the car with me. she called her husband to come change the tire for us, helped me unpack my entire trunk from our week away then her husband stopped his shopping trip drove about 10 miles to us changed it for me and were on their way, and so was I. <3 Oregonians!
Enter Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue firefighters and Metro West paramedics, who rushed to a grocery store parking lot at Southwest 185th Avenue and Farmington Road. Firefighters later delivered the healthy baby girl in the back of an ambulance. A very similar birth happened 24 hours earlier in the back of an ambulance on Highway 217, where firefighter Jesse Fitzpatrick delivered a healthy baby boy.
Maybe you've seen the FOX 12 "Unstoppable" weather commercials, where the FOX 12 weather team emphasizes the Pacific Northwest's "can't stop us" mentality when it comes to weather. During Thursday's snowstorm, FOX 12 may have found a new poster boy: Alex Hacke, who shared his GoPro bike commute video and affectionately became known as "Snowbeard" in the FOX 12 newsroom. Watch his video here.
