    Beautiful photos. Love the snow covered tree and the view from your back deck. What a winter wonderland for you...right now we are enjoying a hot sunny day - finally a hint of summer here in Australia after days and days of rain and floods everywhere

    Lynnie, I have a friend ( actually the daughter of a dear friend ) who lives in the Sydney area of Oz.. I love looking at the photos Hannah sends out on her facebook page, because it makes me smile thinking we will eventually have summer again!

    Welll....... I should be looking in my backyard for snow.... but, none to be found. We've been having a warm spell. First time since I've lived here (5 yr) w/o a white christmas. Feel like I'm back in CA.

    The view and snow look great. Hope you enjoy them :-D

    Oh how pretty. But you can keep it if you don't mind! I happen to like winter, but not snow. It gets so dirty and ugly here in the city.

    Pab, I grew up in the bay area of California, and all we had was rain back then. When I moved here to eastern Oregon, I was so upset that first winter, as there was no snow.. I finally flew back to where I grew up, for the New Year, and when I returned home on Jan. 3rd, there was 3 feet standing in my yard at that time.. This storm that hit hasn't caused much of a heart beat to flutter, but then again, its not even in our worst snow season yet!

    Lovely to look at, but so glad it is in Oregon and not here in NJ.

    Hope that doesn't bring a blizzard down on us!

    haha, Cathy.. seems like when we storm here, everyone else eventually gets it most of the time.. This time, I will not send it to your state.. I have the power of the snowball in my very hands.. oh wait, I have pocket warmers , guess the snow will melt before it gets to NJ!

    Hi, we have about a foot in our back yard ( some melted, new stuff came ) and its still snowing here now, not hard, but steady.. They said 2 or 3 inches tonight, and some throughout the week.. Stay warm.. I am heading to bed, with three quilts, as I can't stay warm today..sigh.. I knew this hobby called quilting was good for something!!

    I love snow. I wish we'd get a good snowfall, but since we're trying to get out of here on January 2nd for our snowbird trip, I guess I want it to hold off. This is our third time going. The first two, we got snowed in both times, even though we tried leaving early enough the second time to avoid it. Our neighbors now gauge how much and when the snow will fall based on when we plan to take off on our trip. Last year, we didn't go, and guess what? No snow all winter.

    Beautiful landscape.... Can I send you some of our snow from good old Minnesota? I love the mountains in the background.

    It looks beautiful I love winter, snow and all. I am in Northern Ontario Canada. We have about 4 times as much snow as you do right now. The snow banks in the driveway are about three feet high. I have never had a Christmas without snow.
