This is one place to the south of us.
Early in 2009 we had multiple instances of snow, and twice it lasted over a week. Very odd for our area (western Washington State, US).

    I dream of a white Christmas, but have never seen one.

  • You kind of have to put yourself in the territory. . . LoL, I’ve seen more than I care to mention! One year I got snowed out instead of snowed in, and had to spend extra time with my parents. Loved it!

    What a magnificent capture!

  • Thank you, sendao!!
    We’re getting snow again this year, as we speak. Or ‘type’, I guess I should write. (29 Dec 2009) This good boy dug his mom out of the snow so her little bitty car could get her home. It’s his truck he’s by, and I suggested that they put his mom’s car in the back of his truck, like for a ‘spare’ until it stopped snowing! LoL !!
    Happy New Year to you, with great peace and health, sendao!

    This is cool!! I feel sorry for the dude shoveling oh man.. snow is fun for a few mins.


  • Hey, Junior!
    Yeah, this is a good guy who loves his mom— her little tiny car got stuck in the driveway. So he shoveled it out, and she brought his truck to work for a few days. I hate the cold. It’s snowing today (29 Dec 2009). Some day I’ll be back in the warmth!
    Take care, my friend! Dayonda

    Beautiful snow scene!!! I love snow and it’s so beautiful on the trees!

  • Oh, if I had only known you love the stuff, I’d have sent you all we had in 09. It just kept snowing, sticking, melting; snowing, sticking, melting. And we were freezing!!!
