Snow descends upon Portland

Arctic Blast 08 Hits Portland
And to think this was yesterday morning, and we've had so much more since then. Even my gnome is cold.

Cold gnome

I like to think in times like this we are offered rare opportunities to enjoy the moment of wonder, of each other and of simplicity. Neighbors have offered to get us things, we've checked in with Rudy, the birds are fed, and all of our gift baskets are done and ready. And we'll never forget the year that snow fell for days at Christmas. I open my eyes to the wonder of nature and see beautiful things today...

more than just wintry mix

Even in the craziness of holidays, challenging travel situations, forced togetherness and tough economy. You can still see the beauty right? It's right in front of your eyes.

Beauty in it all
