Boy are things starting off crazy here in the Upper Willamette Valley this year. The average snowfall for January in Portland is 1 inch (3-4 inches per year) – Although I can’t seem to find the actual statistics, I’m guessing we’ve already reached our Portland average with more snow on the way on Tuesday night! February average is 2 inches! Is this a sign of what’s to come this year!!
Although it is beautiful, us Westerners don’t know how to drive in it – then add the ice on top of it like this last round (more than an inch of ice in some places) – it gets pretty crazy.
But when you can sit at home by the fire sipping hot toddies – it’s really wonderful.
And we all stayed in the warmth by the fire –
