Trying again -- Just a few views of our wonderful snow. . .

Definitely surprised to see the snow all the way down to the river AND ice on the Columbia River too! The snow was so deep over to the fence by the Columbia that I could hardly walk through it.
This is another bench on my way down to the river and the LAND BRIDGE. Now only if that snow were a soft cushion, it might be a nice place for a rest!
As I was taking a photo of the icy branches, a Starling flew into the picture. . .


I have been talking almost daily photos of this bench since it started snowing. . . it is two blocks from my home and seems to be in a strange place near the curb facing the house. Besides it being a beautiful bench, it is "frosted" with all that snow!

This picnic table is in my neighborhood near the Kiggins House. It was kinda tough walking through the park because of all the snow.

I want to wish all my friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too!

So you won't be sitting down at the park for a while! What a nice blanket you have out there. Glad you got the pictures and got the post!

Hi, Paulie,
No news from you since several days..Have you been very busy, or is it the storm of snow, that was stronger than Internet?I hope you're going well...

It looks like your new camera and you are getting along just fine. I love the icy branches and the bird.

It was in the low 70s here in Texas on Christmas Day.

Hi Paulie,
Hope you had a good Christmas! Did your snow last? We had rain and then temps up into the fifties which was good to clear the driveway, but the snow remains in the driveway.

I like the picture of the bird in the branches.
Happy New Year.

Love the snow shots - but really do NOT want any snow here. It's late but Merry Christmas. Hope your new year is joyful and blessed.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .

Blog Your Blessings Sunday
