Columbia Gorge Ice

I took these nice pictures this afternoon at Latourell Falls.  Those are the first falls you come to after Crown Point on the old scenic highway.  I highly recommend a visit this weekend if you get a chance.  Some winters it never gets this cold so the falls don’t always freeze.  I’m working on the forecast and will have a fresh entry this evening.Dscf0011_5 Dscf0010_4

    Is it true one time it got so cold in the Gorge that Multnomah Falls spray froze at the bottom, and got so thick, it began to move like a glacier? I’m not too surpised…I read the lodge is so tucked under the cliffs that the sunshine doesn’t even hit the building for three-four months out of the year. Some houses in Canyon City near John Day are like that too.

    The freezing rain justed started falling about two minutes ago here in Tigard…. I thought there was something on the stove but it was the rain falling on the sky light…

    Great pix. On my first visit to Oregon in 1985, I was taken up to see Multnomah falls while it was well frozen. Very beautiful.
    Also, by any chance did I see a fireball/meteor heading N-NW last night, at about 9:55? It was moving so slow, with a long greenish trail stretching out behind it. I’ve seen several over the years, but this one was so amazing, I was very surprised not to see something about it on the news last night.

    Great pics. Do you really think we’re going to get freezing rain on Monday? I hate to get a tire changeover for just one day. I also need to be able to get down our long, steep driveway on Monday!
