Darn -- I live too LOW for the SNOW!

I woke up this morning to pouring rain but I could tell that there must have been a SMALL trace of snow last night cuz I could see a small bit of it on our carport roofs.....And as I watched the rain fall I could see a small FLAKE of snow in there every now and then. So I decided to go out snow hunting. I drove out of our apt complex driveway and up maybe three houses and already I could see more snow on the ground. Then I drove further up the hill (I live at the bottom of a dormant volcano) and towards the TOP of "mountain park' it was a winter fairy land!!!!! (DARN IT_ I am SOOOO jealous!) It looked like they probably had gotten at least 4 to 6 inches of snow -- it covered the ground, trees, roofs, the street..... It looked wonderful! It was still raining up there but they had so much that I doubt the rain will melt it before tonight when they will probably get snow again! I must admit, I sure wish I had chosen a higher elevation place to live when I went searching for apts. It is such torture to have snow so CLOSE and yet so far -- STILL -- it was a lot of fun to at least be able to drive up into it. I wish I had one of those camera phones cuz I would have taken pictures but my phone is an oldie and a moldie that just calls people (how strange for a phone to just do that lolol)

Someone had made a family of "snowmen" including a "snowDOG" :-) And they were all holding open umbrellas over their heads. I would have loved to have taken a picture of that to put here for you all and to send in to our local news station that wants snow pics.

Since I was out anyway -- I decided to drive to Target to get some head sets for my phones. Just driving a few blocks down the road into Tigard -- all the snow was gone and it was just regular wet roads. I sure WISH that we would get some snow down to the "Valley" floor. Still -- it was neat seeing snow anyway. :-)

Yay! \(^_^)/... Aurora found the snow _finally_ :P... so now you know where to go for the snow, but you're too low for it to blow, so slow, hoho ho, no? ;-)

So they could make a SnowDOG but not a snowCAT huh? I hope you got out and made a little snowKITTEN for them (and picked up a little cheapie digital camera from your shopping trip so you can show us next time ;-). *hugs*

And hello Nani - welcome to the technicolour scrawl otherwise known as Skye Writing... make sure you leave lots of comments everywhere... "Please feed the Aurora" ;-).
