It shouldn't be happening, but it is. We're headed toward mid-February, and it's SNOWING here in Portland, Oregon. (sigh)
It's not sticking all that much. It's been going on since we got up this morning, on and off. (It's now past 2:00 p.m. in the afternoon.) I just checked the temperature, which shows as being 36°, so that explains why it's just barely sticking. But whether it sticks or not isn't the point. The point is, we don't get snow in February! So why are we getting it now?
By the way, it was in the 60's last week. So how weird is this???
Look how big and fluffy these flakes are. It's easy
to see the snow coming down, even in a still photo!
Again, fluffy big flakes!
Thick flakes, too!
Actually, sometimes it's had more rain mixed in.
Other times the flakes have been smaller. But when
I took these photos, some of the flakes were almost
the size of my HAND!
Okay, I admit it is pretty. (smile)
But it's WET snow -- and it's cold out. Certainly
colder than I'd like it to be, anyway. (brrr)
In the GOOD NEWS category, I did take time to stick the oil -- and we still have more than 100 gallons. So I'm not going to order this week, anyway.
I'm wearing my heavy 'fuzzy' top and just had a hot bowl of soup to further warm me, after being outside to stick the oil, fill the hummingbird feeder and put out seed for the birds. I'm also thinking about having a hot cup of tea. I'm still cold, furnace blasting away or no...
