I live in Oregon City, OR and we do not get snow very often at all. But last week and yesterday we got way too much. Yesterday's storm caused so much trouble; hundreds of accidents, people stranded, cars abandoned, roads moving so slow it was 2 mph so took hours to go short distances. Over 600 kids were stranded at various schools throughout several cities and some did not get home til 11 pm. School buses filled with kids also got stranded and one slid on a hill and took out three vehicles, one with people in it. Not good and I am sure the insurance companies will be busy for several days.
Me, I do not venture out in weather like this. I stay home. I look out my windows and keep bundled up. I did take some snapshots from my viewpoints and here they are. The first shows my now defunked garden in the snow before it got really bad. We got 2-3 inches but it was lots of ice, too.
A feathered visitor hopped across my back deck.
a metal garden art butterfly was bedecked in snowfall.
A metal art piece blew down and was decorated.
Mooshoo watched snow fall and no visitors to the birdbath.
Some of my garden grasses in the white...
A blast of red in the stark white!
I also managed to get a few shots of birds out in the yard. Do not ask me what kind as my reply will only be-bird!
I want to toss in the photo I took of the super moon back in November.
I am just hanging in there all bundled up and keeping warm.
