Winter Weather in the Willamette Valley

I’ve been enjoying watching large flocks of geese come down to rest along the Willamette River near Salem, Oregon.  As dusk comes closer, they wheel in, honking with all their might, and then stole down on the grass to eat and rest.

Recently, though, we had a rare, wintery storm.  Although I did see a few land in the snow, they seemed to be occupied elsewhere while it lasted.  There were quite a few kids who enjoyed the wintery whiteness, though.

My nephew, Jake, looking much cuter than any goose ever could!

We have snow so rarely here, that the kids loved playing in it for quite a while.  I simply enjoyed the children, along with the breathtaking beauty of our brief winter wonderland.  It was a real treat!
