But, very pretty while it lasts!

Yep Donna.  That is how our snow usually is.  My youngest DD lives maybe 5 mins from us.  Less than a mile.  We were having mostly rain with a little snow.   Maybe ended up with about 2" in snow.   She had almost 6" and no power.   Our winter weather is really strange,.

Donna, my DH buys firewood split, and resplits it himself, too. But he sues this power table saw to do it. He has a very bad back and can't use an az anymore. But, where there's a will, there's a way.

DH jumped on the Sno Wovel website right away...but wont work for us/him.  We only have the 20 feet or so of paved walkway that it would help with and everything else is gravel (Sno Wovel only works on pavement from what he could see).

This is not snow.  It's frost. OK, the stuff on the ground is snow, but on the trees, it's frost.

Beautiful in pictures Patty, I am picturing you in front of a warm cozy fireplace sipping a hot toddy or hot chocolate.

Hot toddy!  That sounds good.  I have some hot toddy mix in the fridge.  Going to heat the water now.  Hmmmm, how much rum should I use?

Beautiful Patti...  

We've been having very heavy hoar-frosts too, but I haven't noticed any on the icicles ( maybe cause I don't get up early enough?)...lol.

Incredible photos, Patti!  I love hoar frost, but I have never seen it so thick!

I think the hoar frost may be heavier at Patti's because she is closer to the Columbia River and the humidity at this time of year may be slightly higher...just a guess.

Here are a couple of contributions from the Methow Valley.  Our front fence and our little stag-horn sumac tree were loaded with hoar frost the other morning:

This is the view looking east toward the Columbia River (and down valley) from the ski trail above our house on Monday (MLK Day):

This is a favorite stopping viewpoint for everyone.  I took pictures of/for 3 groups of visitors before I took this one for myself.

What do you think of this grooming Nancy???  And this was about 2 in the afternoon!

Our frost resulted from having freezing fog for several days.  Seems we were right at fog level.  I kept hoping the sun would come out, because then it is all sparkly, like the frost on your fence.  Very pretty.  Usually we are above the fog, but this time we were surrounded.

I think I want to visit you in the winter, now!  If only the long drive didn't hold the potential to be treacherous in the winter.  Hey, maybe Randy and I and Calley could move in with you for three months.  LOL

I know I'd be sticking to those traditional tracks - never learned the skating style.  And I know I'm not in the shape you're in!  Thanks for sharing the view!
