I always anxiously await trilliums on the property. They let us know that winter is well and truly done.
I know this isn’t a huge amount of snow relatively speaking but western Oregon just doesn’t get enough to be able to handle it well. We had some snow and ice and Portland just lost its collective mind for a week. Folks in the northeast are keeping warm by laughing hysterically. We had a similar storm in December and there was so much public frustration that TPTB even broke down and tried salting the roads this time around. But I think that needs to be laid before temperatures get too cold and so it was too late for that to make any difference. I was glad to be able to be off work for a few days and stay clear of the snowpocalypse.
