Snow Update

Here in these parts of Oregon, we have reached about 3 feet of snow and there is more in the forecast. We will definitely be having a white Christmas. No questions. Our Subaru is completely under the snow, our deck is nearly unrecognizable and the snow drifts are nearly to the top of our picket fence out back. This unlikely Oregon weather has broken all of the records. This crazy weather has made Ryan and I realize that we could easily live in a community where its like this all winter. It just makes me so happy. Regardless of my current gimpy state and the reasons behind it. Just looking out at this insane snow, makes me so happy. I know to most of my friends that makes me sound totally mental (April, Jackie, Dana...) After living in California for a short stint, I have come to really dislike the rain. I much prefer this snowy weather to a rainy day...any day.
I only wish that I could go out and play in it!
The only thing that will make this weather drain on me, is losing our electricity. The lights have been flickering all day. I think it's only a matter of time before one of the ice covered trees falls on a power line and poof...off goes the power.
There has been talk of the possibilities of postponing Christmas celebrations, nothing set in stone yet.
Not sure what the future holds, but all I know is this...
I love the snow!!!

Okay I'm back having read and commented on all previously missed posts.
I'm so glad there's someone else who loves the snow! We don't usually get as much as you guys have right now but we do get a lot of snow in the winter. We too will have a white Christmas and it makes me happy!

Wow that is just crazy. We had about the same amount you guys do and you live closer to Mount Hood. Its insane. I am not sure if my poor car is ever going to leave our driveway until summer time. I pray we don't get another storm like this any time soon.
