We've had several big storms hit our area which is really not normal for us here in Oregon! They're calling it the Arctic Blast which seems a bit silly to us as we moved here from Idaho that always have snowy winters. But honestly it is causing a lot of issues for us here! We've had about 18 inches of snow in the past week, and one freezing rain storm that left us with an inch of ice over everything. Ice makes for the most beautiful photos. We've been loving it, going for walks, taking great picturs and having fun, even without power at times :) The kiddo's all had an extra week of holiday for winter break, many shops and businesses are closed or closing early, our airport has had many delays with frustrated passengers, public transport stopping in the middle of routes... crazy. A lot of accidents too! Here's a few photos to share.
