Hey, who got snow today?

We got about 3 inches in Albany. Did any other valleyites or coast people get the white stuff? We are getting more this evening that I can see. Love the snow but I need the kids to go back to school tomorrow.

Use caution if you are coming over the coastal range or driving through the southern or mid Willamette Valley. There, now that's travel related enough.

6-8" in Eugene....looked like almost a foot piled up on our deck. With more on its way. Pretty, but a bit scary with the tall firs bending over under the weight. Fortunately, it hasn't been a particularly wet snowfall.

No travel worries here.

We had freezing rain yesterday. Enough to make the sidewalks and driveway slick (as my husband and the puppy found out on their way home from their walk) but that was it.

We had lots of fog today.

I don't know how we didn't get freezing rain here on Saturday. It was raining and 30 degrees. Just slippery on the walk in front of the house. Loved the snow today, walked around the whole neighborhood. Never see this many people out in the middle of winter. Would have thought it was 70 degrees or something.

Aaaah, now I know why Newport was a virtual ghost town Saturday night, lol! We went out to eat and were remarking that it was like the "old days" ... hardly anybody anywhere in town. So nice :-)

Then we were in Lincoln City tonight (Sun) and the same thing -- no traffic, no crowds.

It was snowing hard coming home over Cape Foulweather (and us in the 2WD truck *of course*) and sticking. We guessed about .50" at 7:00 pm.

But nothing anywhere else, just plain ol' rain.

The weather yesterday and today sure is odd! We sit up high, but only got freezing rain yesterday, then plain old rain. Got a bit of snow this morning, but when DH went down into our town this morning he said it was icy. School is delayed, but of course the kids are hoping for an update...a closure, lol!

Higher hills east side of Lake WA, five inches as of now and snowing. We don't expect winds, however, fortunately. Guess we won't be coming to the coast immediately. :)

voyaging--Sounds like our old area. We were in the foothills and loved the snow we got.

kids got their wish...no school today. Not really due to snow, but more ice. Even DH is waiting to go to work. One guy is coming from Hood River, so he might not make it in at all. Guess he gets to spend more time at his weekend home.

We woke up to an inch of snow on the ground this morning. The hill we live on got very slick so we had fun watching all the people trying to make it up. The garbage truck driver finally gave up and came back in the afternoon.
