Snow at our house

We don't get snow that often in Portland (it's been about two years since the last time).  We had big fat pretty flakes and it stuck some.  We both did some shoveling at our house and at the neighbors.  People don't shovel much in Portland because it usually goes away pretty quickly.  This storm has some freezing rain as well and that can be a mess.   So we shoveled.  Sometimes that can make it worse so I shoveled half the walkway width, hedging my bets.

The storm caught us somewhat by surprise with not enough food for three days of ice.  So we walked to the store figuring the walking would be better today than tomorrow.  It was also good to get out.  I've been holed up since the last three days were too windy to endure.

We just got the ice pellets last time here. We have only had one snow storm so far, way back before Thanksgiving. Maybe we are sharing winter with you this year.
