|Our museum looking rather snowy (taken by Brittany Wagoner)|
By Thursday, my hiking day, we are supposed to be back to rain, lots and lots of it, and temperatures more than twenty degrees warmer than today. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we do get snow and cold sometimes, but this is enough already. In the recent past, we barely got a hard freeze during the winter months, much less days of snowfall. And it's only February. At least we are past Groundhog Day, February 2, when we pass the halfway point to spring and there is actually more light than dark. We are gaining more than three minutes of daylight every day now, in the Northern Hemisphere at least. (I sometimes forget that some of my blogging friends are experiencing the opposite.)
I heard they got it even worse in Seattle, though, with up to several FEET of snow in some places. I'll bet they are happy to see the sun come out today. Hope wherever you are, you are safe and comfy. I'm sitting in my favorite chair and just finished a great lunch.
I love weather! Wish I'd been in Seattle for this storm.ReplyDelete
Your photo is quite lovely. Makes me think of Russia.ReplyDelete
I'm done with winter. Anxiously awaiting warm, sunny days. Today is so gloomy that we have lamps on around the house.
It snowed here today too! Your snow is very pretty on that old building! :)ReplyDelete
There is never enough snow, DJan (until May). Snowing hard right now. I'm done with exercise and sitting by the fire. Stay warm.ReplyDelete
I feel your pain - well, not right this minute, as for some strange reason we hit a 70 degree high today! I don't mind the snow if it comes and stays for one day - two at the most, after that I'm done.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful plan...sitting in your snug chair.ReplyDelete
Snow is pretty, but it really does disrupt people's daily lives, closing the school district Wow !
Your area is hilly so snow on slopes would be challenging. You don't have snow removal equipment or cars that are ready for snow and ice. Keep safe.ReplyDelete
Our daughter got lots of snow in Abbotsford too.ReplyDelete
Freezing rain here, Jan, which causes its own problems.ReplyDelete
We made it out of the driveway and up the hill to our appointments this afternoon. Not looking forward to all the slush laying around as the rain slowly washes it all away.ReplyDelete
I just saw Linda's snow photos. Wow! It all looks so pretty. I hope it warms up for you, DJan. I'm enjoying your new profile photo. Lovely!ReplyDelete
I love the snow, but on the mountains, not in town! Yep, we've had our share of the white stuff in Portland too....however, I hear the Gorge is going to get more snow and freezing rain tomorrow. The never-ending PNW winter!ReplyDelete
75 today in South Florida. Maybe gloating just a little!ReplyDelete
...and here we sit in Corpus, complaining of the inferno we're experiencing. We had 85 degrees yesterday. Fog this morning, and 70 degrees at 6 a.m.!!ReplyDelete
Snow's pretty. But only in photos. I wouldn't venture out in that to go to ANY class. lol
Looks like you might have to take up skiing to get in your exercise. It sure is pretty though and I am envious. It was 80 here yesterday and it has been windows open all week. I moved here to enjoy changing seasons but this year--nada. I fear summer will be brutal.ReplyDelete
Question from So. Carolina: What is this thing called snow you speak of? Looks a little bit like sand!ReplyDelete
It's nice to have the balmy weather we have been experiencing in Hawaii. I don't like snow at all.ReplyDelete
