So...taken earlier today while the city (Portland, Oregon) reeled under the heel of a nasty Winter snowstorm...this is a sort of tongue in cheek shot from our deck of the metal sign that's hung on the barn roofed shed since it was completed.  Like...who needs Alaska (where we lived for 8 years) when you have Oregon?


This little duster laid down a little over 6 inches. Now, after THIS Winter that may not seem like much to the rest of you out there in most of the U.S.A. And pretty much, you'd be right. I just hate to be left too much behind in anything, I guess. lol

I've been watching the news/weather about that storm Dave. I'm only 400 mi or so north of that and it's missed
us completely. Was rather sunny yesterday, although a bit cold.

Seems like the greater Seattle/W. Washington area has been in a little pocket of the jet stream all winter so far.
All the storms just go east of us and hammer the midwest and eastern seaboard, or go south of us like the one that
nailed you.

In fact so far this season, we've had surprisingly little precipitation. Some of the ski areas aren't even open and they
normally are running sometime in Dec. Yet with the snowpack being so low that will certainly affect agriculture later
this year during growing season as lots of farmers in E. Washington rely on irrigation from reservoirs and lakes
fed by the snowpack.

Cheers,

RR
