Today, after so much begging, I woke up to SNOW! Yeah, it happens. Rarely, but it does snow in Portland! Though it was more slushie-like than anything else, but still better than rain!

Every morning I take Scratch on a walk. At least, almost always. But today I did and since it was snowing A. decided he was going to tag along. Man did he have fun!! He walked a good half block with his tongue sticking out!

I love how he says ‘cheese’ at the camera and his eyes close.You can barely see it but it was snowing hard! Bad iPhone photo I guess.

So we walked down the street and turned left onto this little sidewalk that has a creek running through it. And guess what we saw!? DUCKS!! I’ve seen them before when the creek is about to overflow…is that even a creek?

You can barely see them in the pictures, but they ran away as soon as Scratch got a little bit too close for comfort! And on their attempt to run away they almost got run over by a truck and, of course, I almost have a heart attack right there! I sometimes fear that birds just won’t fly away and simply stand still in the middle of the road so I got all worked up and I almost yell at the driver…hehehe…but the ducks made it to the other side of the road safely and probably thinking what was wrong with me!

It snowed for a good 40 minutes. A. loved it. I enjoyed it. But still…those 40 minutes did nothing!!

See!? 40 minutes and you wouldn’t even be able to make one tiny snowball but more likely a slushie.

Reason #1 we are relocating to Colorado? SNOW!! So, if it is snowing on your neck of the woods and want it to go away, please do send it to Portland!! And better yet to my house!! 😀 We would really appreciate it and love you tons!

    I love the snow! I was a little shocked to see it when I went on lunch (my lunch starts in between 9am and10). I would love it if it snowed tomorrow and cleared by Monday morning! 26 wont be fun at 5 am if it is all icy!
