Snow Here!

It's exciting, because we hardly ever get snow. Here in the Willamette Valley snow is rarely seen. The climate is usually just too mild. But every once in a while, we wake up to discover snow on the ground! It's only a half inch, but it makes everything so beautifully white. While it is mostly raining now, off and on we get big fat snowflakes coming down. School openings are delayed. Drivers are being extra cautious, because many have little experience driving in these conditions, and the town does not have much equipment to deal with the snow. It's early, but soon I'm sure I'll see neighbors out and about walking in the snow, maybe a few of the younger children will build snowmen. It is so nice to have this reminder of the beauty in the world.

  1. Isn’t it funny how everyone dreams and wants snow for Christmas? My coastal California kids have yet to get it, but they dream on…
    Lucky you.

    1. The temp goes up tomorrow, so it'll be gone before Christmas, but it was fun while it lasted. :)

  2. I like the look of snow but it stops there. I'm not big on cold.

    1. Yes, it was pretty to look at, but I'm glad most of it has melted. I don't like the cold and I don't like to drive in the snow.

  3. We had snow just before Christmas, and it snowed all day long today. I was at my daughter's house and had to drive home in it just a little while ago. It's great to be off the roads, but fun to look out the window at it. :)
