    Got a wee bit o' snow last night ...

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christ-mas, eeeeeverywhere you goooo...

    Took these pics at around 7:30am today. For those unfamiliar with winter in the 'northern lands', at that time of day everything really does have this blueish tint. Had considered waiting until things brightened up, but the winds were picking up and I didn't know if the snow would stay stuck to the trees as that occurred.

    Before the storm arrived, there was no snow whatsoever on the ground.




    Btw, those deciduous trees in the background are around 60-70ft tall (maybe more).







    The branches of the prostrate shrub in the background were originally in the vertical position before the storm. It is a 7-8ft tall dogwood.

    We only got a light dusting in some places around the Portland Metro area, it was elevations above 1000 feet that got the real stuff.

    Beautiful shots! Here is a shot I snapped in Mendocino County, CA while I was driving home for the holidays (snow is rare in this area, I was excited).

    Cool pictures!
    (the pine trees are actually 30 to 40 feet tall, not 60 to 70!
    (look at the 4-foot tall fence in the background, and interpolate upwards)

    Pines aren't deciduous, Scot (at least the vast majority aren't) ... and the deciduous trees (hardwoods ... mainly maple) were the ones I was referring to. Yes, you are quite correct about the pines -- they are "only" about 30-40ft tall (and would be taller if the power company had not "topped" them on several occasions over the years).

    @Mark: Sorry dude, the PO has issues with "liquids" being sent in the mail -- and that's the state it would be in by the time it got to you.

    @Natalie: Those trees look nicely decked out for the holidays. Don't imagine it will be likely to last though will it?

    @Jim: So how much did you wind up getting?

    Glad ya liked the pix, folks.
