Ok so this was written in the wee hours of Thursday morning before I shoveled the sidewalks around our building. . . but it makes a good header for my LATER early morning excursion down to the Columbia River. The remaining photos for this post, I took after a few hours sleep when I awoke to Maintenance snow blowing our sidewalks just before 8:00 AM. Yes, all my hard work shoveling was covered with another layer of freshly fallen snow! That makes three snowfalls this winter for Vancouver when I was beginning to think we were never going to get any at all.
A peek out my window on the 8th floor, I could see there was more snow so I quickly got dressed and went off on another walking adventure that ended many miles later and I will show you more for a few days.
This is from my living room window on the 8th floor looking towards 4th Plain Blvd.
The homes in front of our building from the 8th floor balcony -- I am gradually getting outside! The mountains in the background are Oregon, across the Columbia River. I live 2 miles away.
Looking east from the 8th floor balcony towards Mt. Hood in Oregon which is covered in clouds today.
OK, I finally got outside with my camera and found this branch fascinating.
It was as if the leaves were saving the snow for me!
Of course, the beauty of the snow was displayed in other ways too!
Beautifully displayed for me . . .
Those branches must be strong to hold so much snow just for me and my camera!
Even a peek at some blue sky in this winter wonderland!
Such beautiful displays of that wonderful white stuff that fell from the sky! AND I haven't even left my block yet!
Come back for more tomorrow -- this kind of snow, YOU don't have to shovel.
