Oregon Zoo animals get a snow day

STORY: Earlier this week, a storm dumped 10.8 inches (27.4 cm) of snow in Portland, Oregon, according to local media.

The 64-acre zoo, home to over 2,500 animals, closed on Thursday (February 23) and Friday because of the snow.

Across the country, more than 900,000 were left without power and thousands of flights were delayed as the snow brought havoc from Washington state, along the West Coast, to New England.
