Winter Solstice

Almost ironically, today is the first official day of winter. Last night was a crazy, stormy, snowy, windy, icey night. This morning the Portland Metro area, including Gresham, has pretty much come to a stand still.

At my house the foot of snow is covered by a thick layer of ice. The trees make a funny crackling sound in the wind.


  1. When I lived in Portland we called that a Silver Thaw. Everything frozen. Trees get very brittle and snap like twigs. I am tired of this freezy stuff. MB

  2. Well this looks familiar.

  3. It is crazy for you but stunning for us to view another beauty.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
