We are having a "snow event" here in Portland, or so they say. Here in Portland an impending snow event invokes full-on panic and chaos. The schools close, everyone cleans out the grocery stores, gases up the car and hunkers down.
Mostly it turned out to be special, magical, smart snow. I say magical because of how it looked when I got up this morning. There was no wind so it settled gently and covered everything with fluffy white frosting. I love the way snow soaks up all the sound and makes the world so cozy and quiet! I say smart because, for the most part it knew to stay on the un-paved areas.
Last night I mentioned the forecasted chaos to Annette over at So Many Memories and she wished me a snow day so I could stay home from work and build a snowman.
Staying home wasn't in the cards but I found this little guy out in the parking lot at work mid-morning. A co-worker did what they could with what there was and those are words I live by so had to share him. He even has tiny little pebble eyes. If only there had been a teeny little carrot laying around!
