TIGARD, Ore. (AP) - It wasn’t the marriage proposal Matt Behrens planned, but it worked just as well.

He was going to pop the question Wednesday evening at a Portland restaurant, but the snowstorm left Behrens and girlfriend Shannon Kernan stuck in their suburban apartment.

Plan thwarted, Behrens went out to shovel. Then an idea struck: Why not surprise her now?

He shoveled a message in the snow and called for Kernan to come down.

In her bathrobe, she ran outside to find Behrens on one knee. Behind him, he had shoveled two words: “Marry me.”

Of course she accepted.

Kernan told The Oregonian/OregonLive (https://bit.ly/2gT9jBK ) it was a much more romantic way to be asked. “It was perfect.”
