Oregon did its impression of Alaska yesterday and was blanketed in snow. The above photo is of Fern Ridge Rd., looking east. Highway 22 bisects the image (behind the stop sign), but it’s not visible beyond that little line. The field to the left of that car on the hill is part of Etzel Farm. It’s something of an optical illusion, in that where I was standing was flat and that’s a fairly steel hill in the distance, but it almost looks like it could be the other way around.
That vehicle on the hill stayed there for several minutes. I don’t know if they made it down, as I had to go home. It was too darned cold out there to stay out for long.
The temperature will stay about the same today (below freezing), so the snow isn’t going to go anywhere. That means I won’t be going out on my scooter to the car show/fireman’s breakfast at the fire department, the craft bazaar at the middle school, or the tree lighting on 3rd Ave. this evening — provided they are all still happening, that is. I know the car show and breakfast are still on (at least as of last night’s post on their Facebook page. The Star Cinema’s Facebook page says (again, as of last night) that their almost free movie is still on. And StaytonEvents.com says the craft bazaar is still a go.
If you go to any of those events and want to share pictures here, that would be awesome! My little scooter just wasn’t made for snow. Please see the Contribute a Photo page for how to submit your image(s). Snow pictures would be great, too, so please feel free to send those on over, too. Thank you!
Stay safe out there.
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the day! And happy Wednesday to everyone. We aren’t having a white Christmas here, but this photo, taken during a recent snowfall in the hills outside Stayton, by guest photographer Denny Barnes makes it feel like we are. Thanks, Denny!
Here’s another photo from the snowfall in the hills outside Stayton, courtesy of guest photographer Denny Barnes (see also: Return Of The Snowmobile). Such a beautiful winter scene. Thanks, Denny!
Denny also sent one more photo, but I think I’ll save that one for Christmas day.
It kind of snowed a bit the night before last, but other than on some rooftops, it didn’t stick around in Stayton. But the hills outside of town were turned into a beautiful winter wonderland. Guest photographer Denny Barnes reported he had about four inches of the white stuff, and sent along something of a tradition here on Stayton Daily Photo — the snowmobile (I’ve posted other photos of it in the past — here’s one, and here’s another). It’s just darned cute with the snow on it.
Denny also sent two other snow photos, so barring any unforeseen events of the important variety, I will I’ll be posting the day after tomorrow. Come on back around, y’all.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent in today’s photos (be sure to click on the one at right to see it larger). His description (written yesterday):
My Daffodils are finally trying to bloom but that white stuff keeps getting in the way. We had rain-snow mix most of the day yesterday and then got up this morning to 1/2 inch of snow on the ground and snowing hard. No TV,
can’t have that! Had to clean the snow off the satellite dish to get it working again. Enough snow already!! I am more than ready for spring!!
Amen to that last part, Denny. Did someone move Oregon to northern Canada when I wasn’t looking?
Today’s photo is another from the spring snowfall we had last week. This sidewalk runs in front of a neighbor’s house… there was about three inches of snow on the ground at the time. I liked the snow on the tips of the fence boards.
This may or may not be the last snow photo. It depends on my mood tomorrow.
More snow photos! Sure, the snow’s all melted outside, but it continues to live on in photos. And will post snow photos for as long as I think I can get away with it.
Today’s photo was taken by frequent guest photographer, Jim Mullholand. This lovely blanket of snow was photographed near the close by town of Scio. Thanks, Jim, as always.
The snow which fell over a couple of days ago has pretty much melted (we actually had sun yesterday, which was welcome but strange), but that won’t stop me from posting photos of it. This was the view off of Fern Ridge Rd., looking out into a random field. Highway 22 runs along the back part of the photo, but it’s hidden behind a hill.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting another guest photographer photo of the snow. Come back then. Or stay around until then. Or, if you’re viewing this in the future, then just go there right now. Whatever works.
