Walking in the snow.

I got up early for a walk in the snow.  Here's the view from just down the road.  As you can see, there have been few cars, a few people and one bike out and about before me.

Walk sign covered with snow.

Partial obscuring of street sign by snow.

I think that no one will want this couch.

A rare sight in Portland!  A shoveled walk!

Portlenders are very good at hunkering down in the snow.  We're stalwart through the worst driving rain, but everyone just gives up at the first sight of a flake.  Example:  it's 7:15 in the morning and I was the first person to walk on this stretch of sidewalk.

It was a blowing snow, so there were some fun shapes.

I shoveled my walk, though.  When shoveling happens only every few years, it's quite fun.

I set out later for another walk.  Here I cut through a pristine alley.  But you notice a bike has been here before me.

A van, but what's this?

A bit of snow graffiti.  This was sweet graffiti.  My friend captured a picture of a car where someone had written "PENIS" and another passerby had amended the word to "DENTIST"

More drifts of snow.



  1. Lovely! I've always liked the look of snow, and going out for a walk in it. I just hate driving in it.

  2. It is quite pretty! Snow graffiti, that's funny. And since I will supposedly be seeing more of this white stuff - this evening and tomorrow I am feeling a little snarky about the @#*&ing snow!
