Her Hood of snow

Long time ago, I read a poem--undoubtedly a very minor one, published in the local paper--in which a homesick Oregonian wonders how things are back home. The last line was "Does Oregon still wear her Hood of snow?"

Well, she does.



Mt Hood


I took an emergency sanity-saving bike ride this afternoon because it's SUNNY outside--perfectly, cloudlessly sunny. In December. Not all that common. Whereas it's uncommonly boring inside. Pedaled down to Waterfront Park, and this is pretty much what I saw. (Didn't have my camera with me, so have a webcam image.)

I'm feeling a good deal more sane now.

Oh man. I just exploded into little candy hearts for our beloved city.

Your bike ride sounds heavenly.

Me too! Little candy hearts!

There's vitamin D to be had even in D-cember. But you gotta run out and grab it while it's shining. And when you do? Rewards like this.

*<3s Portland so much*

Glad you liked. Days of full snow-cover AND clear skies in Portland so we can see it are pretty rare. It's a breathtaking sight.
