It's Tuesday, Feb. 20, Clean Out Your Bookcase Day. Happy birthday to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (1943). Today in 1909, Portland-area school children celebrated Presidents Day by planting rose bushes at the Lewis & Clark Exposition fairgrounds. Hold on, we could see a little bit of snow during the day, becoming a lot of snow in the evening, with a high in the upper 30s. Spend the snowy time cleaning out your bookcase and donating the books to your local library's Friends group today:




• See the exhibit "Forces of Nature: Historic Portland Floods, Fires, Ice & Snow," 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Pittock Mansion, 3229 N.W. Pittock Drive. pittockmansion.org/events/exhibits/

• Sway to America's music at the PDX Jazz Festival, beginning at 4 p.m., various locations around the city. pdxjazz.com/events/2018-02-20/

• Ride your bike to a rally to keep bike lanes on Southeast 26th Avenue at Powell Boulevard, 5:30 p.m., gather at Powell Park, Southeast 26th Avenue and Powell Boulevard. www.thestreettrust.org/2018/02/take-action-save-the-bike-lanes-on-se-powell-26th/

• Hear Portland author Leni Zumas read from her new novel "Red Clocks," 7 p.m., Broadway Books, 1714 N.E. Broadway. www.broadwaybooks.net
