Oregon Coast Snow Day – Alsea River

SNOW DAY ON THE OREGON COAST!

It doesn’t happen here often so we get really excited about it.

This is how I can tell it’s snowing.  Our weather heron has snow all over him.

About 6 inches, I’m guessing?

We threw some seed where they could get to it without being shoulder-deep in the snow.

I’m just sorry I’m up the Alsea River, this year, and can’t get to the coast to see snow on the beach.

I’m glad I have an indoor job today:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVEYV6xdStI

Elk-sicles?

Okay, at least it isn’t in the teens again this morning.

At least they have fur coats.

You’d think ducks were equally protected with all those feathers.

But someone clearly forgot not to sit on the melted ice overnight.  It froze their butts off.  (I promise, that’s the last time I’ll say it.)
