Well, the weather man claimed that the last snow storm that we had "was the last cold spell that we would see." Ha! I knew when he said it that he would be wrong. My husband even was predicting snow for March and we were so right! I just love living in Oregon and it makes me even happier when we have a "real" winter. It has been awhile, but it has finally happened. So, here are my pics:
Here we are in spring just a couple of days ago. I just love the pretty oak trees that are near our place. They look so much like ents, especially with all that lichen. I took a ton of pictures of them, but I won't trouble you with all of those.
So, this was yesterday morning. Snow everywhere. It was quite lovely and rather soft snow. I think we had probably 4", luckily it was easy to travel through and we were able to go out and get our errands done in a beautiful winter wonderland.
Today it looks like this. You can see the snow line crawling back up the hills and the pretty Columbia River flowing all nice and blue. I think that I live in one of the prettiest places and just thought that I would share. For those of you that are wondering about where all the knitting/fiber stuff is here is a pic of my new yarn. It is 80% alpaca and 20% silk and is fingering weight, which I am quite proud of. It is also hand dyed by me. I love the colors and it was a total joy to spin
