Portland had it's first ice storm of the year last week. I very gingerly went outside to take some photos.
It's amusing to me when people talk about how Portlanders don't know how to drive in the snow. Well, this is the kind of snow we normally get. In this kind of weather, it's hard to leave your front porch, let alone drive.
It's important though, to keep the bird feeders stocked. Even the tiny hummingbirds are out and need food.
The ice and snow sure make for some beautiful photos.
Here's what's left of our summer peppers.
Our Christmas lights are hanging in there.
As are the tree branches.
This kind of weather makes for a great day to make soap and what kind of soap do you think of when it's icy out?
