When it began snowing in early afternoon yesterday, I first went down to the Columbia River to see if it was getting any snow there because it is the lowest level. If we had snow sticking there, we would get more of it in other parts of the city too! This shows the beginning of the snow storm at the river. I am sure it got more snow as we got 3 inches before it stopped.
Then I walked a little higher on the land bridge that goes over the freeway from water to land at the Fort and they had snow there too! I met only one other person on the land bridge.
This is a settlers home replica at the fort. The snowstorm was in full force by then and visibility was quite low.
You could hardly see the Fort as I walked by. Usually, one can see Mt. Hood in Oregon behind the Fort but not this snowy day!
Now I am in the Fort Vancouver National Park and the sign is pointing to where I just came from. It is the northern entrance to the land bridge.
This photo and the one below are of the trees near the O.O. Howard House on Officers Row.
It is still snowing as I approach Officers Row.
On my way home -- the bus transit station is just two blocks away after I cross this bridge over the freeway. The snow has hit full force. Time to go home and change into dry clothes , shovel the sidewalks around our apartment building so the folks that live here can walk their dogs and then I will go out again!!!!!!!!
This post will post on New Year's Eve so I want to wish all my blogger friends a wonderful 2010!
