Yes, it has been awhile! Our second snow storm in the Willamette Valley arrived yesterday. It’s 29 degrees out right now and the Japanese Maple is feeling it. Perhaps this camera and I will make it out again tomorrow. Until then, stay warm my friends.
We don’t get a whole lot of snow in the Willamette Valley and often it comes after Christmas and in January. Last night as I was driving home from a late night soccer game it started snowing and its been snowing on and off today. At one point I was driving and in less than a mile I was driving and it was snowing, then raining, and then the sun was out strong. We don’t have the best drivers when it comes to driving in the snow in Oregon, I was most annoyed and concerned by the number of people driving without their headlights this morning! It will be interesting to see what the weather does for the remainder of the week.
I was driving north to Junction City again with the sun behind me and these monstrous heavy rain clouds to my west. While I’m often slowed due to the large number of farming equipment being driven on the road I can appreciate it when it allows me to capture pictures like I did today!
By the end of my 30 minute drive the clouds went from this blue below to grey.
A little over an hour later I drove through about 400 meters of hail and I heard the Willamette Valley (of which I am a resident of & is quite large) has seen its first snow.
