Winter at last
When I first arrived last winter I was excited about being in the snow again. Snow does not fall in Portland Oregon. Well, we got snow on Halloween, and then nothing the rest of the season. But look at this year. See that snow plow? That is Longine's idea of snow removal. And he quite diligent about clearing it out. This is one of those tractors that actually pick up the snow and puts it somewhere else. It is incredible. So we move our cars and when we put them back we are clear to move around. He is constantly doing snow control.
This is the back porch looking over towards the hill in back of the house where I grew up. I should put pants on and venture out to take more pictures, but the wind has been whipping about and as much as I love winter, I love to be inside, warm, looking out at it all.
This is my bathroom window. The whole top half of it had a snow overhang. there are bird feeders everywhere.
Today I went out to my car to brush the snow off so I could go see Robin only to find that Chris, Longine's wife had already cleared my car of snow earlier in the day. Can you believe it? She said that my car is so small she just couldn't help herself. It only took a couple of minutes. I am making bread on Friday. I will give them a loaf.
I want to go out to see if the pond is frozen. I keep promising to do that. And I will. I promise.
