Missed (most) of the Snow this Year

14 Feb

As you read last week I was off on the other side of the states, enjoying the beach and the sun (not really it was still cold, but dry).

Virginia Beach 2014 #2014YFRI even got to drive Jeff Gordon’s Tour Bus!

Jeff Gordon's Tour BusIt wasn’t all fun and games though, I really did learn a lot!  Although I did miss most of this white business here back home….

Winter Blast 2014!

7 Feb

If you can believe it, Oregon is looking to shut down once again due to WINTER STORM 2014!  Let the fear set it Oregonians, bundle up your loved ones, put chains on your cars, but for heavens sake don’t drive anywhere, tie a rope to the barn, we may get up to 3 inches of snow!!

It’s already sticking to the hazelnut trees!!

Hazelnut Trees & SnowYes all you Midwest folks I can hear your laughter from here!! 😉 And yes…ok…it did get a little tiny bit worse here over the course of the afternoon yesterday.  And I’m sure those of you who don’t live in the most tropical region of the banana belt like I do, did see some pretty good snow.

I heard from a farmer from one of those “I” states, that he is running out of room and places to push the snow…that’s how piled up they are!  Well I’m off to get the snow plow warmed up!

Wordless…and SNOW!!
