Arctic Blast 2008 continued
I realize that because of my last post I am being mocked by anyone who lives outside of the state of Oregon. So, allow me to explain the huge difference between getting snow here and getting snow in a place like Utah. Oregon: there are a total of two snowplows available for the entire state. Utah: snowplows everywhere some people even add a plow to the front of an ATV and plow their neighborhood. Oregon: they say it is too cold to use deicer, salt, any other method to make us safe. Utah: deicer sensors are built into the road, salt and sand trucks everywhere. Oregon: can only drive on highways and freeways with chains on. Utah: who owns chains, just leave and hope you get there. Oregon: ice everywhere, it took me almost two hours to get to and from my sisters house (normally it is 40 minutes round trip.) Utah: snow not ice. Oregon: school has been cancelled all week. Utah: really, they cancel school because of snow? I have received more than one comment about this not being snow...I assure you this is snow for Oregon. Here are some updated pictures of Ayda, I really got her dressed to play (except I don't own gloves for her anymore--snow boots are actually rain boots and she didn't want to wear her hood so she is wearing my hat and scarft) she was good for a couple of minutes but her hands got cold and she was ready to be done.
