    A few shots from the snow...-gctid346760

    So you northern folks consider this old news, and you floridians don't have a clue (oh yeah..I know...you had to put your big boy pants on a few days last week cuz it got down to 50). but for us puget sounders, shoveling snow off the decks isn't all that common. Here's a few shots taken from the Foss waterway in Tacoma, most of our boat, Celtic Knot.

    This one is actually across Commencement Bay from the mouth of the Foss. Grain terminal in the left foreground, looking towards Browns Point.



    Across the Marina towards Mt Rainier, which is hiding at the moment.



    Across the bow of our boat, towards Dock Street and downtown Tacoma



    Snow on deck



    Icicles



    The rains washed it all away, so back to normal pretty quick. But both my office and home power was out from Thursday a.m. until Sunday evening, so we more or less lived down on the boat. Trying to keep the two dogs from slipping off the dock into the drink was a challenge.

    Pics look sweet though, definitely a view I have never seen

        What's that white stuff all over the place?? Did Mt St. Helens go off again

        My oldest bro is in Salem and they got a pretty good amount also.

        Nice pics though - as long as I don't live there

              Knock on wood. Our winter here has been mild so far. A few cold days and nights but most days highs above freezing. There were 4 days in December when I turned my furnace off as it was not needed. Last Friday we got 4" of the white stuff. It was all gone by Sunday when it warmed up again and we had a lot of rain.

              I know we are going to probably get hammered before spring arrives but I am enjoying the winter so far.
