So this year winter has come a lot earlier to our ‘Green Acres’ than expected. We got about 4 inches of snow in one day. Last I heard we lived in the “banana belt” of Oregon. Not too cold, not too hot. A nice amount of rain, but nothing like what Portland gets and just a sprinkling of snow. Last year we had 2 snow days, and it melted within 24 hours. So between last years winters and this year, I present to you – Our Green/White Acres in all it’s splendor.
I found some wild tracks…
But it just turned out to be Ranch Cat. I am so glad her natural camouflage finally kicked in.
We have rain chains on our back patio. (Rain chains are alternatives to a downspout.) But when the snow started melting because of our fireplace, and then the temperature dropped…well we got this.
This icicle is is about 10 feet long and 2 inches in diameter.
So Derek just relit the fire, I have a new book…I bid you a warm and cozy goodnight.
