Portland Winter Wonderland? Sort Of...

Just a quick entry so I can share more photos...

We walked to the corner store (it's around four blocks away), freezing all the way! At the time it was 22° -- but with wind chill supposedly felt like 7°! (yikes)

We've also been outside to feed birds and squirrels -- and for Marilyn mistressmarilyn to clear the snow off the top of her bushes out front. (It can really damage them...)

So, time for photos!

You can see that the snow is still falling heavily,
even though it's already piled high on our deck furniture!

The snow is piled high in all the flower boxes and on top of feeders.

Snow is falling like a blizzard and is piled on trees.

This is the front of our house. It's amazing how hard the snow is falling!

Here's our lights on the bushes, glowing under the snow.

Here's tree branches of the huge tree near our garage.

We waiting (unhappily) for the arrival of freezing rain now. (big sigh)
