They're reporting this is most snow we've seen in Portland in December since 1968. Yup, seems 'bout right.
Needless to say, we're not really using the front door right now. There's easily over a foot at the front door.
Spots of color, like this snow-covered ornament, really stand out.
The lovely bark on my crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia x 'Zuni' on the right in this picture) really stands out in the snow.
Don't see this everyday; a cross country skier cruising along NE 47th.
It's really piling up in the back garden. Cozy though. Sit for a spell?
Prominent in the photo to the left is a yew (Taxus x 'Sentinalis) that is normally very strongly upright that was splaying under the weight of this snow. I went out this morning and shook the snow off this and some of my other evergreens this morning (well, as best as I could at least). If we get ice after this snow I worry that it will break under the strain.
The kitchen garden is to the right.
