Snow. Wind. Rain. Wind. Snow

Many distractions the past few week; not exclusive to computer problems and illness. The weather in our "neck of the woods" has garnered attention.

Fortunately we are not in an area that had noticeable floods. First we had a cold front with snow. Within 24 hours of a beautiful snowfall, the wind blew in with a vengeance. It stayed 3 days. However, the worst of the storm hit the west side. Then it blew right over the top of us and tore through northeastern Oregon.

We have returned to a beautiful snow covered morning on December 7.

Sorry for the bad weather spell. It did leave a beautiful trail at your place.

After 4 years in San Diego, our first winter in WA looked a lot like this. It was truly a winter wonderland for us.

Beautiful picture Pamela. Not sure what is wrong with my computer, but I haven't been able to comment on your blog! Even now I only get half of my comment on the computer, so I hope it makes sense!
I do enjoy your blog!
