    View from my house

    LOTS of snow in the last few days. 17 degrees at 10:00 AM and the snow is FROZEN!!!!! Notice the icicles.....I've seen them get all the way to the ground...

    Thought you all might enjoy the pics.

    Beautiful! But you can keep the snow. We're supposed to be getting our first measurable snow on Thur. I love looking at it, but sure hate shoveling it.

    So pretty in the pictures. You could make one of those your Christmas card.

    So pretty! I can't wait for snow. I live in NW Ohio and we have yet to have a good snow. But I heard we might have a bit of snow by the end of the week. I sure do hope so...

    Wow, that is so beautiful. I've never lived in snow (never even seen it) so snow scenes are always fascinating and so pretty

    Thanks for the pic, love looking at the snow, but hate living in cold climates. Lived in Idaho Falls and they have about 9 months of winter a year. Leaving tomorrow for the wonderful Gulf Shores of Alabama.

    We live in LaPine -- south of Bend, Oregon ----- in Central Oregon. We're at 4300 feet -- and get more snow than Bend.

    Oh - Chasing Hawk -- - I'm in your FRONT yard!!!! And, yes, the Himalayas have more snow. I think this is the "big year" --- it's been 7 years since a big snow!!!

    Dee, Such beautiful photos! I just moved back to Grants Pass, Oregon after living in Grandfalls Texas (desert, dust, stickers and very little green, rain or snow)for over 3 years. We have just gotten settled into our new home and we had about a fourth inch of snow when we woke up this morning! It was so gorgeous! Maybe some day we can get together!

    Brenda --- that would be a blast!!! Welcome back to Oregon!!! I made it to San Antonia a few years back....that's a beautiful city, but quite frankly, I wasn't too impressed with the rest of Texas!!!! (mostly the sounthern part is where we went). I have a good friend in Canyonville......will be visiting her next spring. Roseburg has a quilt show I'm going to enter..........they had over 300 quilts last spring!!!!

    Beutiful pictures A few years ago I tried to find housing in LaPine but wasnt lucky enough to find a place to live so ended up in Bend for awhile but drove to Lapine a lot just to enjoy the view.
