This year it's been in the teens for about a week now with very strong to moderate winds downtown. But today, it was sunny and one of my hosts and I went for a walk up Basin Road. I was well wrapped. But I've gone back to find a couple of pictures I posted on March 4, 2010, like the one above. It had rained and then in the morning there was a light snow cover. You can still see the grass.

This picture is about two blocks away from the previous picture, a year later. The plowed snow edges the roads and roof snow curls downward.

This one on the right was the closest match I could find. It was taken Feb 3, 2010 just after it snowed. Flakes were still coming down. There's more snow than this part of the road had most of the three months we were here. Last year, when it snowed, it was gone within a day or two.
But it was great getting up the road and past the houses. It wasn't long before we realized that there was a a snow waterfall on the far side. With my tiny camera, it's obvious we weren't in any imminent danger, but you can see, in the video, the snow tumbling down the mountain. It went on for quite a while. In the video there are shots of it from two different locations.
