A few days ago, Portland got a little snow.

Where we live, it covered the ground, but it was gone quickly.

When it began, I went outside…

Isn’t it amazing?

At least you got to see some snow right? It doesn’t stick around long here either.

thanks – it was pretty cool… good thing we don’t have neighbors, they probably would have thought I was a little funny, walking around shooting random snow… :D

Oh my gosh, that is so pretty! I have never seen snowflakes that look like true snowflakes. I guess I don’t look close enough :)

They look like confetti! The snow we get here on rare occasions comes in teeny specks or in the form of sleet, so this is SO COOL to see!!!

24 spabettie January 17, 2011 at 9:39 am

I know!! we hardly ever see them this way, by the time I see it snowing everything is covered already. we make snowflakes as kids, but I never really knew they existed like this…

How did you catch that? Perfect snowflakes! They almost look fake!

28 spabettie January 17, 2011 at 9:37 am

right?? the snow was coming down so light… I saw a couple like this in December when it barely snowed, so I thought I’d try to catch some more!

Wow, I am an Oregonian and I wish I had noticed the detail of the snow like that! Those are fantastic!

thanks!! pretty amazing, right? when it starts snowing you need to get out there immediately, before the snow is heavy and you can see the single flakes. I never knew they REALLY existed! :)
