Suddenly, Minnesota winters don't look so bad

That's an Oregon police station ... covered in 7 feet of snow.

If you think winter is bad in Minnesota, check out what just happened to a police station in Oregon. It's almost completely buried in snow!

The Oregon State Police say the office – which is near a mountain east of Portland – is covered by about 7 feet of snow. All you can see is the building's entrance, but apparently it's still open for business.

The nearby ski area has some pretty crazy pictures of cars covered in snow, too.

Yeah, it may be brutally cold here, but at least we're not in Oregon.

This story is part of our Best of the Web section – which is just cool stuff we find online and want to share with you.
