Let it snow!

They say it doesn't happen much around here. Yet here it is. We're in the midst of a snow storm. Well, alright, maybe not a storm, but we've got some heavy snow showers and it is 27 degrees Fahrenheit and the temperature falling. The weather forecast is for more of the same and colder weather for the next week. Brrrr.

This is exciting stuff for those of us who grew up in California. It rarely snowed in San Francisco, maybe once every seven years. The snow never stayed around.

Here in the northwestern edge of the Willamette Valley, they get some good frost, and snow on the hills. Supposedly we see a dusting a couple of times a year. Well, this is our first year here, and we've got more than a dusting.

Enjoy the slide show.

Hey "Cuz". Love the pictures of the snow. Now that part of Oregon winters we do miss! About one time a year we got enough snow to call it good and up on Orchard View where I used to live it was just high enough to get a bit more.
