We have had terrible winter storms here in Bend, Oregon since Christmas. We kept thinking "this is it" every day but it never was and it got to the point of real concern. We had to have our house / garage roof shoveled, many stores were closed in town, roads were thick layers of ice, and in the ground snow we had 3 layers of snow and ice....the ice layers about 2 1/2" with a couple of feet of snow between like a bit marshmallow sandwich.... It "IS" beautiful so my camera has been busy and here are a few of the ones which are my favorite. Notice the landscape image of upside down trees in the water drop at the end of the icicle.... the snow falling from the trees as it warmed up a bit today, and the snow by our house nearly roof high from having the roof snow removed.
