Yesterday we had a proper little blizzard! The snow was blowing sideways and it was so cold that it was those tiny dry flakes. I stayed home from a Portland Women's Forum meeting and I'm glad I did as by the early afternoon it was pretty scary to be on the roads. I also missed a meeting today for the Friends of Multnomah Falls. I'm staying by the fire and Kristi and I are taking care of Dayle. I'm crocheting and enjoying the brightness outside.. another snowstorm is moving in at about 3 pm. I snapped all my photos from inside the house.. do you believe that I don't have a pair of snow boots? This is the azalea outside our family room bay window! Doesn't it look like cotton bolls?
From the kitchen towards the barn.. brrr!
See what I mean about it blowing sideways?
We're cozy inside by the pellet stove blazing away.
I tried to capture the blue light of dusk and the snow... this is the forest outside of our master bedroom.
The world is blue, inside is warm.
This morning the sun was out and everything was bright!
Looking into the forest.
I love the pattern of the snow on this tree trunk.
I stepped into my craft studio and this is the view from the French doors there.
My art nouveau lady garden sculpture and Dayle's dad's Chinese lantern. The pond is frozen.
The snow on the deck.. you can see how deep it is by the footprints.
Kristi braved the freezing weather to take the boys out to play in the snow.. this is Hayden.
The boys playing with their basketball in the pasture. Ah, youth.
It's going to be pretty interesting to see what comes next! All I know is I hope that the electricity stays on and we'll be okay. Travis, our son, will be home for the weekend in 4 hours and then we can all enjoy a cozy family weekend together. Thanks for visiting.. I hope you're keeping warm where you are! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
