The Start of Snow




A white, icy blanket has covered the northwest. This is just outside of town, where the snow is a bit deeper. In town, there is only a light dusting of the white stuff, and the main worry is the ice. It is supposed to remain quite cold today, but clear and sunny. It should start to warm up for Thanksgiving.

While the snow can be so very pretty, the ice can be so very treacherous. I would like winter so much more if it weren't for the ice!

We've had our share of cold here in Bellingham. We only had snow last Friday night, but the bitter cold wind has left much of it on the ground. Driving has been a challenge so I'm hiding out until it melts a bit more. - Margy

Lovely snow.

BTW, pls check your link on ABC Wednesday; it goes to a specific photo, not this post.

Yep, same here in Seattle! We had almost 5 inches, very cold and lots of wind. Supposed to be in the low teens tonight, but we do have sunshine again! Terrific capture as always! Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Stay warm!

We are blasted by the cold down here in the Sacramento Valley. There is snow as low as 1000feet today. I do hope it will clear up for Thanksgiving.
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Oh, it looks so much prettier by photo! I notice the Gresham temp is 28. It's 6 here and the wind chill measures in minus double digits. Brrr. Happy Thanksgiving!

I love the snow, but one of the bad things about winter are icy roads, I really don't like it :)

We have some snow now, too, which is fairly unusual for us. And today it is seriously ccccold! in the minuses! I look forward to it leaving anytime soon. :D

Well we're completely snowed in at my house! If you were on Facebook, you could see all the pics I shot!

Some say that the start of snow is so sweet. What say you?
I can't believe all the posts that showcase snow. We are to get some on Th (maybe). I guess I am not mentally ready for it. Lovely image!
