Translation for the non-Twitter enabled: If it snows, Portlanders on twitter will use the hashtag #pdxtst to talk about the weather in deliberately hyperbolic terms—the hashtag stands for Twitter! Storm! Team!, and it originated as a joke about the media's breathless coverage of Portland weather, though it's since seeped into more serious mainstream usage as well; backstory here—while Portlandia fans across the country follow along and think we're serious and laugh and laaaaaugh. Well played, Portlandia Twitter account.
