The Douglas Fir tree limbs heavy with wet snow. I can normally walk under the lower branches of this tree.

Snow Day in the Pacific Northwest
The weather people warned us...they said Wednesday would be the worst day. We've had snow here since last Saturday afternoon...but today was the worst. As I write this (Wednesday 4:20pm) it's still only 33 degrees, the wind is blowing and there's a mixture of freezing rain and snow coming down. None of the accumulation has melted today...it didn't get warm enough. I've been out side to get wood for the wood stove and I treked out to the mailbox this afternoon but other than that....I've been housebound pretty much for the last couple days. Hope you enjoy the pictures I was able to take today.
