Snowy Mid-December

While aware that my Alaska and Canadian friends have feet of snow, and my Minnesota, Colorado, Montana, Maine, and Ohio friends, too, still I offer snapshots of our little valley snow. We are so proud of it!


The pot that once grew basil rests under its new white blanket.


Patiently awaits the man for the woman who snaps photos on the way to the store.


Rosemary looks pretty in her winter finery, no?


Muffled neighborhood here...


...and serene park there.

Just a little bit of snow fell from Oregon skies, yet contentment floats heavenward.

It's beautiful to us.

Wish we could be there as your Seattle friend did not get that much snow, ours was only a slight dusting...your photos are magical indeed.

For us, yes WC, ridiculous cold. It was down to 9 last night which is coooold for our valley.

What are your nighttime temps, WC?
