Welcome winter

Here it comes! The morning sky had “that look,” and sure enough, Monday’s snow had begun to accumulate by mid-morning. If you’re going to be out, cozy corners like Penguin Coffee are a great idea. Fellowship, hot beverage and a window to what’s happening on Commercial Avenue. Take care out there…

Snow on tracks

It wasn’t heavy snow, but Fidalgo Island experienced a “dusting” Sunday, leaving elevated and shady areas with ice and a light blanket of snow Monday morning. This photograph was taken on March’s Point between the Shell Puget Sound Refinery and the Ford dealership.

Don’t look now

Don’t look now, but March has unleashed yet another snowstorm. I lied to myself this morning, suggesting the temperature would rise and the white stuff would be gone by noon. Hardly. Pull out the mittens and earmuffs.

Pretty, but…

It’s back. Snow again Wednesday evening, and more through the night. I’m guessing many share my sentiments when I say, “It’s pretty, but I’m ready for spring.”

Soon to go

With temperatures rising, the snow from these neighborhood trees is starting to melt. Yes, it’s beautiful, but I can’t say I’m brokenhearted about the prospect of clear streets once again. It was nice to have a white Christmas, though, wasn’t it?

Two wheelin’

This winter adventurer expressed apprehension on his way by, but it looked to me like he was handling the snow well on his mountain bike. Of course there could have been some challenging hills ahead…

Snow team

This Monday morning walk on the hills above Anacortes included no breaks for conversation with photographers. These dogs were on a mission, noses to the ground in search of who knows what. I was moving at a much more moderate pace. For more morning photos, see “Anacortes on ice” in Activities section.

Causland wonderland

Dressed in a blanket of snow Sunday morning was the gazebo at historic Causland Memorial Park in downtown Anacortes.

Prolonged cold

Heavy snow is not the norm in this region, and prolonged snow and cold are definitely out of the ordinary. There was some melting Thursday, as evidenced by this photograph, but temperatures remained below freezing for the bulk of the day, and there was a sprinkling of new snow to bury efforts to produce dry […]

School’s out

It was still snowing in south Anacortes this morning (Wednesday) when I took this shot of a small garden decoration. Last night’s snow was enough to convince local school officials to close for the day. The first two days of the week drew “late arrival” decisions as parents and bus drivers did their best to […]

Snowy welcome

A brieft jaunt into the county Monday brought me back to town on Highway 20. I stopped for a seasonal photo of the welcome sign on the pullout just outside of town. The small park is maintained by the Sunrisers Kiwanis Club. Restoration work was accomplished recently on a huge slab taken from 970-year-old tree. […]

Despite a snow covering this morning, there is evidence that the vibrant colors of spring will soon decorate our gardens. This beautiful sprout, snow-covered just hours ago, is now basking in afternoon sunshine.
