This winter just keeps on coming! Here, in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, we don’t see very much icy wintry weather very often. This year is an exception! Last night, we were treated with another round of freezing rain. I guess Rob won’t be barbecuing today!
This batch of precipitation is supposed to quickly turn to regular rain and should be melted off by tonight. School was not cancelled where we live, although a 2-hour delay would have been nice. Rob had to drive in it to where he catches the school bus with a little boy who needs guidance on the bus. He made it fine, but left super early to ensure that he could drive slowly. Our deck was treacherous, to put it mildly, and the cars were covered with ice. He drove a longer way that avoided hills, to avoid slippery slopes.
The grass was crunchy when I walked out to take pictures.
It’s beautiful, but dangerous! I’m ready for spring, but there’s a lot of winter left…..So, I’ll enjoy it while it’s here.
