The first picture on Sunday before "The Big Cold Front" hit us...
This was taken the next morning, Monday. It snowed all night long. We had a beautiful blanket of snow. We played in it a bit last night when it was still snowing, but there wasn't this much on the ground!
I let the children convince me to take them out and we walked down to the creek to see it is was frozen over yet. It wasn't AND there were ducks there! It was so beautiful! Can't see the ducks in this picture though. They were at the other end of the pond and my fingers were getting cold from trying to get a picture of them.
Don't you just love how the news channels put a title to everything?! Maybe it's just ours. Maybe it's because Oregon doesn't ever get much excitement. Yeah The Blazers are doing great, but all anyone wants to talk about are the years they were "The Jailblazers". We hardly ever get snow or really bad weather, except for rain. Well as of a few days ago we HAVE SNOW!!!! A lot, even. Schools have been closed. They were closed Monday and for Tuesday. That means that there will be children all over this state begging their parents to go outside. Their parents take them out, only to come back in in less time then it took to get said children dressed. It's cold out there. Not only cold enough to snow, but also we have an "arctic wind" blowing in the north. We're talking temps in the teens tonight. BBBRRRRR
We'll be in the house with the blinds open looking at the snow and drinking our hot chocolate. Mine with a shot of Kahlua ;o)
