Got snow?

Post by oldranger » Sat Feb 24, 2018 11:36 pm

Winter has finally arrived in Oregon. Not the prodigious amounts of last year but more late February snow than I can remember. Cold, light powder!

We were skiing to Todd Lake hoping for a view of Broken Top but by the time we got there it clouded up, then began snowing again--high temp about 20 degrees. Topped it off with a great barrel aged Imperial Stout from Riverbend Brewing. Its terrible when conditions are so nasty that I have to give up fishing and go skiing instead! :-({|=

I'm supper jealous, as there is still only 2"-3" inches on the ground at my house at 6400'. But there is a series of storms forecast for next week...

Used the snow blower for the first time this season. Only a couple inches in the yard but the berm in the driveway was almost a foot high, so I opted for the noisy machine instead of a shovel.

Did get about 2 feet more this weekend at Bachelor. This pic is from Meissner Snowpark a few miles down the road from Mt. B. South Sister is behind the tree and Broken Top is directly above me. Looks like Tahoe is finally getting some snow, Jeff!
