this title was almost too long D:
we got about 6-10 inches of snow over the past 36 hours, which meant no school friday (yes!) and gorgeous fun today
we've a had a cold snap, in the 20s-30s (-6 to -1 celsius) and we finally got some snow!
thanks to the cold, this is the first snow in a while that's actually stayed for more than a day, as well as stayed deep.
deeeeeeeeeeep bro. (we found some snowdrifts, like, to my knee, which is a big deal in the willamete valley)
funnily enough, on vineyard mtn, one of my parent's houses, we actually had less snow and better driving conditions than the valley. (normally everyone in the valley is ok, and we're like 'we have ten feet of snow, our car doors are frozen shut, we can't walk/drive without falling and dying/leave your car at the bottom of the hill or surely you'll perish!' etc.) but we had like two inches yesterday and people were driving up and down and we were enjoying the snow and discussinbg the wimpery levels of our school district until we found out that SNOWPLOWS were spinning out, they couldn't plow or salt, people were having horrible times driving in town, they had twice the amount of snow and yada yada yada. and we're like 'whut?''
the hummingbirds are freezing, we have to melt the bird bath and hummingbird feeders every couple houris and the cats are going and out really fast.
hopefully tomorrow the snow will be icy enough for a snow horse :333
it was like 18 degrees (-8ish celsius) this nroning when i took pictures and i was wearing knit gloves so i could operate my camera and holy crap it was cold D:
anywho, have some snow pictures for you, and those in the valley (and everywhere else) stay safe!
