The snow has delineated the odd curves of part of our yard, and that is due to the many rock formations that exist there. Basalt to be precise.
Although it is very beautiful and quiet, this has been going on a bit long for The Willamette Valley, Oregon. You see, this area is not equipped to keep the streets plowed, and so we get crippled. The ice has caused much loss of electricity and much damage. Many, many places are closed now for days, and this includes retail stores, antiques malls and of course many offices including the state and city offices.
I know this is lightweight compared to many other areas. I love my cake that the snow created out of the bird bath! This family is postponing Christmas celebration until Saturday the 27th., because we will be back in the 40's by then. Yay hooray!
