Where we live snow is a novelty. And to get a foot or more of snow in a weekend is not only novel but so unheard of that it shuts everything down. We Oregonians don't know how to drive or function in snow. Rain, yes, but not snow. It does happen every 5 or 6 years but it comes and goes swiftly. Imagine our delight when this was the year and it happened over a long weekend so we could shut down and enjoy it. We kept our feeders full and enjoyed our feathered friends, we took walks to hear the crunch of snow, we watched the Olympics, we had hot soup and cinnamon rolls and enjoyed the whole experience.
