Before the Big Game

These five items arrived in the mail on Wednesday.
Three more snow-guys to add to my stash!

Thus far we've lucked out with the weather.  The extreme cold never worked its way this far south - my low was 28F rather than 11F - something to give thanks for!  Thanksgiving Day was a pleasant day too.

While all the snow on the floor of the Willamette Valley is thing of the past, it still lingers in the Coast Range to the west, and the Coburg Hills which line the valley to the east.  

This photo is of Saddleback Ridge - elevation around 2200' - still very much a winter wonderland!

And this is Buck Mountain - the tallest of the Coburg Hills at just over 3000' elevation.

Today the University of Oregon Duck Football team plays Arizona at 4:00pm - I am hope the weather holds though rain is forecast for later today.  Either way - GO DUCKS!
