Piles of Blue Snow
Two years ago over a foot of snow fell. Here in the Independence "Vortex," deep snow is a rare phenomenon. Memories of this lovely blue snowfall (in the right light, of course) are especially precious, because it was the last snowfall I shared with my Beloved. It was such a beautiful time in our lives. The snow actually lasted for a couple of weeks.
So far this winter, it has rained over 10 inches. There is a flood watch currently covering the entire Willamette Valley of Oregon. The river, which is only a few blocks from here, is very high. I would not be surprised if we saw the water rise past the parking lot.
In the meantime, life is an adventure. I only wish I could share it with my darling husband. It is amazing that he has been gone a little over a year now.
I'm so grateful for Family and Friends who have surrounded me with love and care.
You, dear ones, are in my prayers. You know who you are. Merry Christmas!
