At this point, the trees are practically bare (not counting the white stuff). But leading up to Thanksgiving (U.S.), there were still some reds on the trees.
The snow that appeared November 21 cleared enough by the next day; as you can see in the above pictures, it’s hard to tell that it snowed at all.
It was still cold enough that the large quartz heaters were set up outside the Tiqa Café. Not only that, but the people there were burning something. (I could smell it, and see a thin layer of smoke coming up in the center of the ‘seating area.’)
The fountain’s been shut off.
But the ducks and geese were still around. (A few people out of frame were feeding them.)
Someone left a pile of apples by a tree.
The squirrels were out, looking for food.
…We still have so many acorns along the driveway.
Beyond the grass, I still saw some plants with greens…
…in the controlled environments the city of Portland has to offer.
They still have several floor plants in the lobby at USM Portland, library building. The plants outside, however…
And then it dumped again, this Monday. Some more snow’s expected Wednesday. Temperatures in the 20s° F this week… until the weekend, when they drop below 20.
At least I snapped a few photos of the lights across the city before the city turned white.
Well, that’s it for now. Unless you want to see more pictures of snow, ’cause the landscape’s still a bit white right now…
